Opposition MP Nikol Pashinyan has advised the Armenian authorities to look for long- term cheap money in the pockets of government officials and oligarchs rather than ordinary people.
While speaking at the I Am Against civic initiative's rally against compulsory accumulative pension system in Armenia, Pashinyan said that at a meeting one month ago Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan confessed that even though almost 80% of Armenian citizens were against the system, the government would still impose it.
"This has revealed the gap that exists between authorities and people in Armenia. President Sargsyan's key argument is that Armenia needs long-term cheap money for developing its economy. So, he better look it in the pockets of former and current government officials and oligarchs and leave the people alone," Pashinyan said.
