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”
Deputy Chairman of Heritage Party Armen Martirosyan will lead the party ticket of the opposition Heritage Party at the elections to the Elders' Council of Yerevan, Heritage Spokesperson Hovsep Khurshudyan said in Liberty Square.
He said that the party ticket includes 64 names: not only Heritage members, but also representatives of other parties, as well as public figures and men of culture.
The top five names are Armen Martirosyan, Anahit Bakhshyan, Mesrop Movsisyan, Stepan Safaryan and Gagik Baghdasaryan. The party ticket includes such people of culture as Ani Kochar, Alen Simonyan, Artur Ispiryan.
Heritage Party leader Raffi Hovannisian expressed confidence that Armen Martirosyan will be the next mayor of Yerevan. He said that the authorities tried to take away the victory at the presidential election, but failed to. They will also fail to take away the victory at the election to the Elders' Council of Yerevan. "The main force rigging the election was the Republican Party of Armenia; consequently, all its members, including its leader Serzh Sargsyan, have nor right to speak of their big wish to hold honest and transperant election to the Elders' Council of Yerevan", he said.
