ArmInfo. All representatives of the Republican Party must unquestioningly obey the decision of the party, this also applies to Serzh Sargsyan. The head of the faction of the Republican Party of Armenia Vahram Baghdasaryan stated this at a briefing in the National Assembly on March 5.
Baghdasaryan noted that since every day there are changes in politics, if the situation requires it, Serzh Sargsyan should assume the post of prime minister of the country. "As head of state, Sargsyan could make any statement, but he does not have the right to ignore the opinion of the majority of our party, but if he refuses his nomination as a candidate, we will discuss this issue, but Serzh Sargsyan has no right to make any decisions, not taking into account the opinion of the entire political team of the Republican Party, "Baghdasaryan stressed.
At the same time, the deputy noted that the ruling party has not yet discussed the candidature of the prime minister, and now it simply does not make sense to talk about this issue. "As soon as discussions take place and we pass a decision on nominating a candidate, we will certainly inform our public, all our actions are dictated solely by the interests of our state, and not to the good of anyone," the RPA faction leader said.
In his turn, ARFD representative Armen Rustamyan stated that the "Dashnaktsutyun" faction will consider any candidate nominated by the Republican Party. The deputy stressed that the decision to nominate a new prime minister will not be until April 9. "The right to nominate a prime minister is in the sphere of the powers of the ruling party, we will discuss the candidacy and certainly will say our word," Rustamyan stressed.
He noted that he is not going to comment on Serzh Sargsyan's statements, since only the president himself can correctly interpret them. "One should judge a person not by his statements, but by his actions," the head of the ARF faction noted, to comment on whether a man should keep his masculine word.
At the same time, the deputy stressed that even if he is appointed to the post of prime minister of the current president, he will no longer have those powers that are now. Rustamyan stressed the fact that after the transition of the camp to the parliamentary system of government, all power was divided between the National Assembly, the Government - of which the Prime Minister is a part, and a free judicial system. "Where you saw the prime minister without authority, it does not happen, however, we guarantee that all power will not be concentrated in the hands of one person," concluded Rustamyan.
