Political expert: Reports that the Azeri Parliament might adopt a law "On Occupied Territories of Azerbaijan" were just an attempt to see the reaction of the Azeri society, Armenia and the world community
Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
The Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP) sees no reasons to join the ruling coalition, PAP Faction Secretary Naira Zohrabyan told journalists on Thursday.
In the meantime, she thinks that it is necessary to provide the opposition with certain levers of control in the state structures. To note, this issue was discussed during today's meeting of the heads of Heritage and ARF Dashnaktsutyun Factions Rouben Hakobyan and Armen Rustamyan and Speaker of Armenian Parliament Hovik Abrahamyan. The PAP representatives took no part in the discussion.
Zohrabyan said that the PAP will wait until the specified forces and the ruling Republican Party of Armenia come to a consensus about the format of debates and only then will present its suggestions. "We also advocate switching to the parliamentary regime and 100% proportional electoral system, but at the same time, we disagree with the opposition factions' opinion that it is necessary to hold snap parliamentary election", she said and added that it is her personal opinion and the given issue was not discussed by the PAP.
