ArmInfo. In the upcoming presidential election, Robert Kocharyan, Serzh Sargsyan, Arkady Ghukasyan and Bako Sahakyan will do everything to turn Artsakh at the heart of revanchism. Leader of the United Armenia party of Artsakh, candidate for presidency of Artsakh Vahan Badasyan expressed a similar opinion to ArmInfo.
At the upcoming March 31 presidential election in Artsakh, 12 candidates registered. At least about ten of them to one degree or another represent the current government. The main candidate for power is the ex- minister of state, one of the richest businessmen of Artsakh, Arayik Harutyunyan. His main rival from the opposition is the Foreign Minister of the Republic Masis Mayilyan.
"Unfortunately, the new authorities of Armenia left the Artsakh people face to face with the former regimes still existing and doing everything for their own reproduction in Artsakh. As a result, the" velvet revolution " did not reach to Artsakh. And today all these people are trying to achieve revenge by sending Samvel Babayan to the opposition field, "the Artsakh politician is convinced.
According to his estimates, Arkady Ghukasyan and Bako Sahakyan ruled Artsakh one by one, seizing power from Samvel Babayan. And over all these years, they brought the people of Artsakh to a state where the latter today are forced to make a choice between the bad and the worst possible, as was the case in Armenia before.
"Arayik Harutyunyan and Samvel Babayan are busy distributing money today for the purpose of buying votes. The mechanism through which money is distributed is the" election campaign ", which only Harutyunyan and Babayan have today. Both simply hire a lot of people to the "campaigns" and offices who are paid "for work". With this, as we see, everything is very simple, "summed up Badasyan.
