ArmInfo.The inadequate statements of the representatives of the Yelk bloc addressed to Gagik Tsarukyan are due to the growing rating of Tsarukyan himself and the bloc headed by him. This was stated in the conversation with the correspondent of ArmInfo by the press secretary of Gagik Tsarukyan Iveta Tonoyan, referring to the criticism of the representatives of the "Elk" bloc in his address.
"Apparently, the growing rating of Tsarukyan and the bloc headed by him, unconditional support and love of the people plunged the representatives of the" Elk "bloc into a panic and were forced to make similar inadequate statements. But only the people have the right to judge this or that politician or political corpse, the people know well who is who", Tonoyan said.
To note, the second number in the list of the "Elk" bloc, former Prime Minister Aram Sargsyan stated that the richest man in Armenia (Gagik Tsarukyan) cannot be an oppositionist, since it is impossible to deploy a large business without the authorities. He also criticized the intellectual level of Tsarukyan, saying that if elected, he could shame the country if it were to be presented on international platforms. The third issue of the same bloc, Nikol Pashinyan, stated that Serzh Sargsyan deliberately allowed Tsarukyan to return to politics so that he would take as many votes from the opposition as possible. Pashinyan also expressed the opinion that in case of success in the elections Tsarukyan either consolidates into a coalition with the Republican Party or becomes an opposition controlled by the authorities.
To recall, recently Tsarukyan stated the impossibility of joining the coalition with the Republican Party. "We were already there and realized that we do not need it", he assured.
