Taking part in the rally organized by Armenian National Congress is a matter of taste, vice-speaker of the parliament, Edward Sharmazanov, told journalists after the sitting of the executive body of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia, on 28 February.
When commenting on the PAP participation in the rally, he said they have such a right. At the same time, as he said, secretary of the ARF Dashnaktiutyun, Agvan Vardanyan, said that he is not going to take part in the rally. "Tastes differ", - Sharmazanov said. He said that he cannot predict how many people will take part in the 1 March rally and added that Armenia is a democratic country which allows its citizens to express their viewpoint.
A rally dedicated to the 6th anniversary of the tragic events in 1 March 2008 will be held today.
