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”
Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili's recognition of the Oct 1 election results in the opposition's favor demonstrates that Georgia outstrips Armenia by 10 steps, ex-foreign minister of Armenia Vartan Oskanian says on his Facebook page.
Oskanian says that the political field of Georgia has counterweights: the President represents one party, and the parliamentary majority and the future Government will be formed by another political force. The former FM thinks that Armenia could outstrip Georgia by the results of its May 6 2012 parliamentary elections; however, the Armenian authorities were unable to take a grip on themselves and to rate the people's interests higher than their own interests.
By preliminary data based on 20.74% of total votes, the two leaders in the parliamentary elections in Georgia are Georgian Dream - 53.89% of votes and the ruling party United National Movement - 41.01%. The other parties have not yet overcome the 5% threshold to the parliament. The elections are especially interesting as after the presidential election in 2013 in Georgia the political and public system in the country will change and the parliament and the government will receive much more powers.
