Free Democrats promise to legalize prostitution, while Communists are  set to eradicate it   

ArmInfo. Hrant Bagratyan, candidate from the Free Democrats bloc, comes out for legalization of prostitution in Armenia.   

At today's press conference in Yerevan, Bagratyan stressed the need  to regulate the activities at the night clubs and strip clubs,  because such facilities located in the center of the city disturb the  residents of Yerevan. He thinks the licensing of such facilities and  their location in a special district of the city will have only a  positive effect on their activities. As regards prostitution,  Bagratyan said:  "We should either follow North Korea's example and  kill the prostitutes directly in the streets or we should legalize  and license the persons who provide such services," he stresses,  adding that in such matter the Armenian society should be more  progressive and take into account the global trends, especially as  taxation of such services will have a positive effect on the state  budget. 

For his part, First Secretary of the Central Committee of the  Communist Party of Armenia Tatshat Sargsyan said that when the  Communist Party was ruling in Armenia, there was no prostitution in  the country, because the society condemned such things. Sargsyan also  strongly criticized Bagratyan, who yields to the western trends and  does not realize the damage prostitution and the strip clubs can  inflict to the country.  "Bagratyan is misleading the society. I do  not understand why needs this. He is already 50-60 years old,"  Sargsyan said, noting that the Communist Party's foreign and domestic  policies will be fighting all negative phenomena and will eradicate  both prostitution and the sects.
