ArmInfo.Proclaiming himself a revolutionary of non-violent and velvet revolution, Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan, expressing his position on the issue of exploitation of the Amulsar mine, suffered his first defeat. This is stated in the statement of the "Yerkir Tsirani" party.
The statement notes that the issue around the operation of the Amulsar mine for the first time after the events of April-May 2018 led to a clash of interests between the general public and the government in making a revolutionary decision that is associated with systemic problems.
<The Government of the Republic of Armenia, having justified facts and arguments, is in no hurry with a final refusal in the issue of exploiting the Amulsars mine. Amulsar's question is that watershed that, in Armenian statehood, can cut off the clash of authoritarianism with the government, and lead to a deep democratic process in society-power relations, formulate an independent economic policy that is not based on mining priority, "the statement continued. According to the "Yerkir Tsirani" party, the transaction on the development of Amulsar is clearly a corruption agreement, one of the parties to this transaction is the former authorities represented by the President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan and the current government represented by the President of Armenia Armen Sarkissian.
<Armen Sarkissian hid the fact that he was a director with wide powers in Lydian, and also had the right to make decisions at a meeting of shareholders of the company. In addition, Armen Sarkissian, who took office of the President of Armenia in violation of the law, did not speak to the general public with a transparent explanation about his citizenship>, the statement said. The fact that the permission to develop Amulsar occurred as a result of a corruption transaction is obvious and undeniable, the party believes, adding that this transaction should be the subject of investigation by law enforcement agencies. <It is incomprehensible and strange that the self-proclaimed revolutionary Nikol Pashinyan avoided open discussion with the general public about this problem, breaking the promise to go to Jermuk and hold discussions there. Pashinyan preferred to hold a meeting behind closed doors on Baghramyan 26, which is a symbol of dictatorship, and preferred to turn Baghramyan Avenue again into a place of violence, "the party added.
According to "Yerkir Tsirani", the continuation of such a behavioral line by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan will confirm that he is also a supporter of this corruption deal and replenishes the ranks of former dictators.
"During the one and a half hour meeting on a vital issue, Pashinyan acted as a defender and lawyer for Lydian, despite the fact that the developing of the Amulsar mine could lead to terrible consequences for the nation and the state," the party said, noting that he had proclaimed himself a non-violent and revolutionary the velvet revolution, the head of government suffered his first defeat.
