Member of Yelk bloc: Heritage could have become a founding member of  Yelk bloc 

Member of Yelk bloc: Heritage could have become a founding member of  Yelk bloc 

ArmInfo.Diaspora plays an important role in the public and political life of Armenia. This is why the members of the Yelk bloc (comprising Enlightened Armenia,  Civil Contract and Republic parties) are now holding meetings with  the Armenian community in Los Angeles, Mane Tandilyan, member of the  Board of Enlightened Armenia Party, has told ArmInfo.        

She says that such meetings are very important because Diaspora  representatives have become disappointed in the fact that their  support does not reach people but goes to the pockets of the  authorities. "Our approach to Diaspora is different. We do not  consider it as a donor. Diaspora should support the state first of  all with its experience and invest in long-term programs aimed at  development of the country," she notes.      

As regards the talks between the Yelk bloc and the Heritage Party,  Tandilyan says that there are no specific arrangements yet, though  nothing should be ruled out given the ideological similarities of the  bloc and Heritage. "Meanwhile, Heritage could have become a founding  member of the Yelk bloc," she says.    

Tandilyan notes that the bloc is experiencing some difficulties with  renting premises for its campaign headquarters. "It is quite natural,  because there is a feudal order in Armenia and the administrative  territories belong to the power brokers. But we can find a way out of  any situation, we have already done it," she says.
