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”
Unlike previous election, during the forthcoming ones Serzh Sargsyan will have a true alternative in the person of the leader of the Heritage party Raffi Hovannisian, deputy chairman of the Heritage party, Armen Martirosyan, said at today's press-conference.
He said that there was no alternative at the previous election, as the main opponent of the incumbent president Serzh Sargsyan, Levon Ter-Petrosyan, is the founder of the present system of government in the country. "Moreover, Raffi Hovannisian is for real changes, and first of all, for changing of the system of government and making reforms in all the spheres of activity", - Martirosyan said and added that Hovannisian's electoral headquarters will do everything possible to rule out fraud and to hold fair and transparent election. He also added that the remarks of another candidate for president, former prime minister of Armenia Hrant Bagratyan, that candidates for president have no electoral programme, is irrelevant, as a group of the highly qualified economists were cooperating with Hovannisian. They presented many ways for fighting unemployment, poverty, emigration and for raising of the social level of citizens. In this context, Martirosyan said that Hovannisian is not going to deal with anti-campaigning and black PR, as he does not accept such ways of fight.
