ArmInfo. We still do not have a concrete decision regarding whether the Prosperous Armenia Party will participate in the early elections separately or as a bloc, but we  are discussing this issue. On October 19, Vice Speaker of the  National Assembly of Armenia, MP from the Tsarukyan Bloc faction  Mikael Melkumyan stated this in an interview with journalists.

Commenting on the rumors about the upcoming consolidation of the PAP  with the Sasna Dzar party in the election bloc, Melkumyan said: "I  have not heard anything about it."

The Vice Speaker positively assessed the chances of the PAP in the  early elections. "I think that we have very good chances. Thinking  this is based on the fact that we have been with the people for many  years, we have had programs. In the end, we don't start from  scratch," Melkumyan said.

Referring to the fact that in the elections to the Council of Elders,  the PPA won only 7% of the votes, the vice-speaker said: "Elections  to the Council of Elders were not ordinary political elections.  Elections to the Yerevan mayor's office were more likely to state  revolutionary achievements. put forward by political forces, little  attention was paid, "Melkumyan said.

The Vice-Speaker also touched upon the draft amendments to the EC,  positively assessing the document:  "The main thing is that we are  refusing the vicious rating system," concluded Melkumyan.
