The leader of Heritage Party Raffi Hovhannisian is not planning a "color revolution" in Armenia, Deputy Director of the Caucasus Institute Sergey Minasyan told journalists on Monday.
"What Hovhannisian wants is to reform the country's political system, and he will do it if he makes best of the huge human resource he has got in his hands for the moment. The 'cut off heads' of some governors and mayors prove that what he is doing is not in vain," Minasyan said, adding that among Hovhannisian's priorities is mid-term parliamentary elections.
To note, the Feb 18 presidential election has been followed by the resignations of governor of Shirak region Ashot Giziryan, mayor of Vanadzor Samvel Darbinyan and mayor of Armavir Ruben Khlghatyan. Some media say that governor of Armavir region Ashot Kaghramanyan and mayor of Echmiadzin Karen Grigoryan may also resign soon.
