ArmInfo. The new leadership of Armenia is strongly inferior to the former authorities in all sectors. Former Vice-Speaker of the National Assembly of Armenia, spokesman for the Republican Party, Edward Sharmazanov, announced this on June 24 at a press conference.
Sharmazanov criticized Pashinyan for the permanent division of society into various camps. "Moreover, Pashinyan pursues this policy not only within Armenia, but also tries to bring discord in relations with Artsakh. All actions of Pashinyan bear the stamp of thirst for revenge, he proceeds in a similar way precisely on the basis of his desire to take revenge on NKR President Bako Sahakyan for the fact that he vouched for Robert Kocharyan accused of overthrowing the constitutional system, he added that such a policy he added that such a policy plays into the hand's of Baku and Ankara.
He also reproached Pashinyan for not fulfilling these promises: "Pashinyan promised to return Artsakh to the negotiating table, meanwhile, negotiations, as before, are held in a bilateral format."
The former Vice Speaker criticized the current prime minister for the fact that his statements often disagree with reality: "We all remember Pashinyan's statement that only after his coming to power, the leadership of Artsakh got acquainted with the negotiation
process, and before that it wasn't informed details of meetings between representatives of the RA and AR. Meanwhile, the words of Pashinyan were publicly refuted by Bako Sahakyan himself, stating that the leadership of Artsakh was always informed about the details of the negotiation process. Moreover, representatives of the OSCE Minsk Group more than once visited Artsakh and met with the NKR President, if he was not aware of the talks, what did the parties discuss during these meetings?>.
"Pashinyan notes that democracy is developing in our country. Tell me at the mercy, what kind of democracy are we talking about when the head of the country calls for blocking the parliament building and subsequently the courts? He says that totalitarianism prevailed in our country, but it was in our time he first became a MP, and later a prime minister. Would it have been possible in a totalitarian country? ", Sharmazanov said.
He reproached the prime minister and for the lack of economic growth, despite promises by the current authorities to carry out an economic revolution: "What is happening now? Investment has declined, enterprises are closing, unemployment is rising. If you don't count Pashinyan's inner circle, all the rest of the country didn't live any better and worse, " Sharmazanov concluded.
