One of the journalists of Aravot.am asked Raffi Hovhannisian yesterday if he is indirectly a part of Serzh Sargsan’s political processes. Hovhannisian answered he does not want to limit the electorate with the guarantee of speech only and what he has done so far was open, transparent and in front of the people and it will be so ever after. Hovhannisian stated he will see a constitutional Armenia even at stake of his life. The leader of “Heritage” party added he wished every citizen participated in the elections not necessarily electing him because an unused vote means a support for the reproduction of the incumbent government which should not be permissible.
When asked why he excludes the possibility to cooperate with Sargsyan in the future Hovhannisian added there will be a change in the government and Serzh Sargsyan has to go. But they will keep the cooperation in the NA where the RP has the majority of the seats. The NA in his case will separate business from legislative body and where the citizen of Armenia is guaranteed not by the speech of the candidate but by the president of the country, the Constitution of the country and his rights.
Hovhannisian concluded the business must be excluded not only in the NA but in the judicial bodies, and urged to follow his example of not having dependence on any business.
