When talking about his nomination in the interview with “First News and Analyses,” Ruben Ayvazyan said, that the rumors about PAP’s request or pressure to withdraw his nomination do not correspond to reality.
“There were not any requests or pressures, I was just encouraged to take into account the fact that the false information may create an impression in the society that I am violating the PAP’s regulation. However my friends left the final decision to be made by me. And I cannot let the press use my nomination against my friends.” – said Ayvazyan.
Although he did not want to mention names, but he said that he himself called his party friends and asked to meet.
