 Leader of Orinats Yerkir (OY) Party, ex-Secretary of the National Security Council of Armenia Artur Baghdasaryan asks the citizens to forgive him for the possible mistakes and flaws in his party's activity. At today's press conference Baghdasaryan said that his party will present its program aimed at resolving the political, social, legal and economic problems in the country.   

The OY leader comes out for transition to the 100% proportional electoral system. In the field of economy, Baghdasaryan stresses the need to remove the administrative pressure on business, liquidate all the inspection bodies and create a single structure, reduce the number of inspections, and to limit the number of the large trade chains in order to stimulate the small and medium businesses. "We will consistently be solving the problems. I understand that there were mistakes, flaws and misunderstanding in our activity and we beg our citizens' pardon", he said.   

He specified that he does not consider the OY's accession to the ruling coalition following the 2008 presidential election to be a mistake. He recalled that he took that political decision to prevent bloodshed.  "The tragic events in March 2008 were the consequences of the behavior of the authorities and the opposition rather than the OY's steps. We feel no remorse", he said.
