ArmInfo. The deputy chief of the Presidential Administration and the Armenian President's Representative in the National Assembly, Viktor Dallakyan, has resigned and left the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA).
At today's press conference in Yerevan, Dallakyan said that today he has filed the relevant notices to the Presidential Administration and to the RPA. Dallakyan said that he is going to return to mainstream politics and to run in the parliamentary elections of 2017 as an oppositionist. "If anything happens to me or my family members, Serzh Sargsyan will be personally responsible for that," the politician said, noting that throughout his presidency Serzh Sargsyan has not kept a single promise he has given.
Dallakyan also commented on the Armenian media reports, according to which he intends to found a political party together with ex-defense minister Seyran Ohanyan. Dallakyan stressed Ohanyan's great contribution to development of the Armenian armed forces. "I think any political force would be glad to see Ohanyan among its members," he stressed.
To note, non-partisan Viktor Dallakyan was elected MP from Vanadzor under the majority election system in 2007. However, in 2012, after he joined the RPA, he lost the election and Edmon Marukyan (who was a non-partisan then) became a lawmaker. Since then Dallakyan has been the deputy chief of the Presidential Administration and the Armenian President's Representative in the National Assembly of Armenia.
