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”
Armenian National Congress (ANC) and Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP) are unlikely to support Raffi Hovannisian, Alexander Markarov, Head of the CIS Institute Office in Armenia, told ArmInfo.
"I think the PAP will not interfere with any political processes or go to Liberty Square, and the ANC already has a sad revolutionary experience. In addition, the ANC is a radical opposition force and is unlikely to cooperate with constructive opposition", he said. He added that he sees no prerequisites for color revolutions in Armenia.
Earlier on Thursday, Raffi Hovannisian met with Serzh Sargsyan and discussed the post-electoral processes with him. Afterwards he told journalists that he will make a statement on Feb 22.
To note, according to the preliminary results of the election, the incumbent President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan obtained 58.64% (861,160 votes), and his key opponent, leader of Heritage Party Raffi Hovannisian - 36.75% (539,672). Hovannisian disagrees with the election results and has been holding mass protest actions for three days. He demands that Serzh Sargsyan should cede the power.
