Musa Mikayelyan in his political analysis discusses the current pre-electoral state of the country. He particularly mentions Sargsyan as a result of Tsarukyan’s withdrawal remained without a strong opponent.
Mikayelyan states the competitive elections which are already impossible to provide where what the US and Europe were urging Sargsyan to reach in the intrastate political arena. This allows Sargsyan to falsify votes for the benefit of the opposition for some 30% since it is clear after Tsarukyan’s withdrawal no opposition candidate will gather at least the 30%.
The opposition lost its support and belief from the public and the first one to blame according to Mikayelyan is the ANC which exaggerated the PAP case so much that after it was removed from the political arena temporarily the only thing to come instead is the emptiness.
There is an option for the opposition to completely withdraw from the elections leaving Sargsyan with the epos expert, but when the opposition had enough time to arrange its strategies for the sake of feasible elections it missed its chance.
Sargsyan’s strategy was effective for the incumbent government and it was Sargsyan who blew the “balloon” of the PAP so much as to remote the latter from him and letting it get closer to the public and opposition but the explosion of the balloon did not hurt so much. It did not hurt so much the incumbent government but it does hurt Armenia on the whole.
Mikayelyan concludes that this explosion for Armenia actually has the effect of a H-bomb explosion which completely devastated the political life for further development. And it is perhaps not in vane the date 12.12.12 was chosen to announce the death of the political life in Armenia for another presidential term.
