The Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP) does not consider the issue of joining the ruling coalition, Tigran Urikhanyan, Armenian parliamentarian, Spokesman for the PAP, has told ArmInfo.
Urikhanyan says that the PAP's agenda has no such an item. "As regards the meeting between Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan and PAP leader Gagik Tsarukyan a couple of days ago, I can say that Tsarukyan raised the same issues as during the previous political consultations and that the Party's stand has undergone no changes", he says. Urikhanyan also points out that the PAP comes out against constitutional reforms, because it is the economic reforms that really matter today.
"Armenia has no constitutional crisis, but the economic crisis is obvious in Armenia. Tsarukyan raised the problems that cause the concern of the public and need to be resolved immediately, particularly, problems related to the mandatory component of the accumulative pension system, use of radars on the roads, reduction of fine amounts, bank lending, etc., i.e. the problems that have increased the social tension in the country", says Urikhanyan in his statement.
