ArmInfo."I think that what happened in the light of the elders of Yerevan is hooliganism, this is a punishable act." Now I and the members of our party intend to wait and see how the authorized structures react to this, "Yerkir Tsirani Party leader stated at a press conference on October 13 Zaruhi Postanjyan, referring to the rude behavior of RPA members in the Yerevan Council of Elders.
"If the RPA representatives have no health problems, their behavior should be considered as hooliganism, and if they are sick, they should be treated," the party leader said, adding that if there are no reactions from the law enforcers to the actions of the RPA members, it is in once again proves that the laws in Armenia do not work.
At the same time, Postanjyan stated that she was hurt not so much by the improper behavior of the Republicans, as by the methods of work of the capital's mayor's office and the mayor Taron Margaryan himself. "Who and by what method determines who should get apartments free of charge in the ownership at the expense of the capital's municipality? Why different actors, singers or TV presenter, when there are so many socially unsecured families in the country? And in general, these apartments should not be given to the property, but should to be given as social housing to those who do not have a roof over their heads," said Postanjyan, stressing that only the change of power can save the situation.
On October 11 the meeting of the Council of Elders of Yerevan was held in an extremely heated atmosphere. The agenda included the issue of awarding the titles of "Honorary Citizen of Yerevan" to several artists. During the discussion of the candidates, a scandal arose with the participation of representatives of the factions of the ruling Republican Party and the opposition Yerkir Tsirani. The Republicans pulled out the behavior of the Council members from the "Yerkir Tsirani", who repeatedly interrupted the meeting, expressed their discontent or shouted from their seats. In this regard, the vice- mayor Kamo Areyan took the floor, from whose unrelated phrases it could be understood that the RPA faction would not allow oppositionists to denigrate the honest name of the mayor Taron Margaryan and his team, to turn their lives into hell. Moreover, Areyan promised to deprive the members of "Yerkir Tsirani" of a place in Paradise, obviously forgetting that these places are not distributed by the Yerevan City Hall. Then Areyan accused representatives of "Yerkir zirani" in infantilism and offered to shut up. Another representative of the RPA faction in the Council, Kamo Hovhannisyan, threatened Yerkir Tsirani member Marina Khachatryan with a court for insulting the honor and dignity of the mayor Taron Margaryan. At the end of the passion heated up to the fact that the architect Levon Igityan began to swear at women from the "Yerkir Tsirani" obscene language.
