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”
During the forthcoming elections into Yerevan's Elders Council Heritage Party will secure as many votes as it did during the past presidential race, Deputy Director of the Caucasus Institute, political expert Sergey Minasyan told journalists on Tuesday.
He said that the key rival of Heritage during the elections will be Prosperous Armenia Party, who has much more money and is also eager to have more votes.
Minasyan said that Raffi Hovannisian's hunger strike will bring no changes in the political situation in Armenia. "They need much more active steps. They simply did not expect such a turn of events and are now forced to improvise," the expert said.
He said that now that Raffi Hovannisian and Serzh Sargsyan have met there will hardly be any disturbances.
