Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan is comfortable with the activities of the four parliamentary opposition forces and their plans to organize a joint rally.
When asked by journalists to comment on the Armenian National Congress's call for his resignation, the President said that this problem is generally solved during elections.
"Any attempts to solve this problem otherwise are illegal. Our country has lots of mass media the opposition can use to express their displeasure and their position on one or another problem. If they want their displeasure to be more effective, let them go into the streets. There have been lots of rallies so far and they have had lots of chances to express their views. I don't think that they are advocates of anarchy. They also want our country to be better, simply, their approaches are a bit different," Sargsyan said.
Concerning the opposition's promise of "hot" autumn, the President said that in autumn political life is always more active than in summer. "Our country must develop, our civil society must develop, I see nothing bad in this. But I would like to note that there must be fight between ideas rather than police and protesters," Sargsyan said.
