ArmInfo.The Ohanyan-Raffi-Oskanian bloc is consistently conducting its election campaign aimed at winning and changing the ruling regime in Armenia, spokesman for the bloc Aregnaz Manukyan told ArmInfo correspondent, referring to the application of the third number of the list of the "Elk" bloc Nikol Pashinyan about "pseudo-oppositionist" Seyran Ohanyan and Vardan Oskanian.
"Our target is the authorities, we do not criticize other opposition forces, moreover, we urge them to consolidate into the government of national accord, since we realize that only through joint efforts it is possible to achieve success over the current regime. As for those opposition forces that talk about opposition and criticize other opposition forces and thus pour water onto the power mill, then the people should assess their actions", Manukyan summed up.
To note, the third number of the "Elk" bloc, Nikol Pashinyan, stated today that he does not believe in the opposition of former Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan, who was a key member of the team of Serzh Sargsyan. "The same goes for former Foreign Minister Vardan Oskanian", Pashinyan said. Today he criticized Gagik Tsarukyan as well, 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.
