ArmInfo. In November, the congress of the Democratic Party of Artsakh will decide on the nomination of its candidate in the presidential election and speak about the principles of forming a proportional list of the party. This is stated in comments on internal political events in the republic by the President of the Artsakh National Assembly, Chairman of the Central Council of the Democratic Party of Armenia Ashot Ghoulian.
As noted in the comments, in the spring of 2020, the republic will hold two national elections, which will determine the life of the Artsakh people over the next five years. "The political field of Artsakh has never been so vague and fragmented. The number of parties has almost doubled, approaching 25. Complex elections are expected as that the population should understand that every citizen is responsible for the future of the country," the commentary says.
In general, according to Ashot Ghoulian, in countries such as Artsakh, the role and authority of individuals have a great influence on the results of the elections, but it is at this very stage it is important to realize that elections are values that can become a solid foundation for well-being and strengthening the statehood. "Short-term interest and short-term solutions to problems will not lead society to long-term development. The Democratic Party of Artsakh announced a new political process. We were in all areas of Artsakh, preparing for elections to local authorities, met with representatives of local structures, discussed the main issues that should be reflected in the party's election program. Work continues today. In November, the party's congress will decide on its candidate for the presidential election and will determine proportional party list ", the comment reads.
The NA President notes that within the party and among the general public there is an opinion that the Democratic Party of Artsakh should demonstrate an example of fair and civilized competition. This position in no way limits the possibility of ongoing political consultations with the forces represented on the political field of the republic. "The DPA is ready to create an atmosphere of solidarity for effective socio-political consolidation in order to comprehensively address the country's problems," Ashot Ghoulian said in comments.
It should be noted that in the spring of 2020, presidential and parliamentary elections will be held in Artsakh. Particular attention will be focused on the presidential election, since it is the head of state who determines the main directions of domestic and foreign policy. Former Prime Minister, leader of the Free Homeland Party Arayik Harutyunyan, Foreign Minister Masis Mayilyan, MP Hayk Khanumyan, Artsakh Hero Vitaliy Balasanyan and others have already announced their intention to take part in the presidential race.
