Pashinyan does not believe in opposition of Seyran Ohanyan and Vardan  Oskanian

ArmInfo.Former radical oppositionist ex-Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan was one of the key members of Serzh Sargsyan's team until his resignation, and now it's  unclear what ideological divisions they are separating, wrote the  third number of the "Elk" bloc Nikol Pashinyan on his Facebook page.

"From the side, it seems that we are dealing with a quarrel in two  related families. I do not believe that the political processes in  Armenia should influence the deterioration of relations between two  friends. The same goes for ex-Foreign Minister Vardan Oskanian",  Pashinyan said.

Touching upon his "difficult" opposition path, Pashinyan said: "It  turns out I was oppositionist in vain all these years, was subjected  to pressure for my views, it was necessary to get into the power  structure in the 2000s, serve Robert Kocharyan and Serzh Sargsyan,  then at a convenient opportunity to retire or leave in case of  refusal to grant me the favored position and become an  oppositionist", he summed up.

Today Pashinyan also criticized Gagik Tsarukyan, saying that he  returned to politics with the permission of Serzh Sargsyan in order  to either consolidate into a bloc with the Republican Party or become  an opposition controlled by the authorities. However, Tsarukyan  himself refutes the possibility of consolidation in the ruling  coalition. And Iveta Tonoyan, the spokeswoman for Tsarukyan, said  that the statements of the Elk bloc were caused by panic because of  the constantly rising rating of the Tsarukyan bloc.
