Political scientist: The people of Artsakh will make their choice  themselves, taking Armenia into account

ArmInfo.It is obvious that the people of Artsakh will make their own choice, but taking into account Armenia so that the elites of the two Armenian states can interact.  The director of the Caucasus Institute, political scientist Alexander  Iskandaryan stated this in an interview with reporters.

Speaking about the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections  in Artsakh, the expert said that in fact preparation for the  pre-election period has already started in the Republic, which will  change the general structure of power in the country.

"Candidates are already nominated and certain alliances are formed.  In general, the main directions are already visible, they are at the  stage of formation, and it seems that in principle it is clear  between which candidates a serious political struggle will unfold.  The campaign, although it does not look too violent, will be quite  interesting", the expert forecasts.

However, Iskandaryan refused to forecast who of the candidates will  win, not excluding various options for the development of processes.   Iskandaryan noted that Artsakh closely monitors the development of  the situation in Armenia, since any NKR president after the election  needs good relations with the Armenian elite.  "It always has been   so. The Karabakh and Armenian leaders were supposed to be such  personalities that could normally interact with each other. Now the  situation is different, but all the efforts will be made to ensure  such interaction", Iskandaryan noted.

The political scientist called Armenia and Artsakh communicating  vessels, and a lot of what is happening in Artsakh depends on the  situation in Armenia, and vice versa. At the same time, he noted that  the results of the upcoming elections in Artsakh are unlikely to  depend on the decision or choice of the Prime Minister of Armenia,  Nikol Pashinyan.

Speaking about the possible impact of Artsakh President Bako Sahakyan  on the situation in the country after the resignation, the expert  noted that it this will depend on which candidate wins.

"In any case, this will be a transfer of power, the person who comes  to power will have the degree of power that the president possesses  in accordance with the Artsakh constitution," he emphasized.

It should be noted that the former NKR State Minister, the head of  the Free Homeland party Araik Harutyunyan, the Artsakh Foreign  Minister Masis Mayilyan, the former Minister of Defense, the hero of  Artsakh Samvel Babayan are participating in the presidential race in  Artsakh. The current president of Artsakh, Bako Sahakyan, said that  he would not participate in the 2020 elections.
