ArmInfo. The fight against coronavirus should not be limited to the struggle of power / Everyone should fight the epidemic: power, opposition, society, all people, all without exception. A similar opinion was expressed by ArmInfo, a deputy of the parliamentary fraction "My Step" Hovhannes Igityan.
<This may sound too idealistic, but it seems to me that the three parliamentary factions should sit together and, on the basis of WHO recommendations, decide what to do and voice this joint decision to society and its constituents. That was how it should be. And so we could overcome the coronavirus together. At the very least, minimize its health, economic, political and all other negative consequences>, he said. Instead of all this, one parliamentary political force, according to him, preferred to act on the principle of "but we said>, bringing under this"said "only what is beneficial for them today to say. In parallel, the same force overwhelmed the European Parliament with groundless complaints against the government. Another, larger opposition force, instead of educating society and explaining the danger of infection to people, erupted in statements like "coronavirus will not bother good people>.
According to the parliamentarian, the ruling political force will fulfill its duties and do its work regardless of whether other parliamentary forces support this work or not. Commenting on calls for the resignation of the government, Igityan noted that the calls were appeals, but the cabinet's resignation presupposes a certain legal process, and that is, a vote in parliament. Considering that there are still three years before the election, a similar "subversive" populism of the opposition will not bring any votes.
Such destructive behavior of people who call themselves opposition, according to Igityan, does not fit into the framework of common sense. <A common threat must rally, not scatter. I have seen this in previous years, starting in 1988. Are all these forces requiring Pashinyan's resignation working today in the fight against coronavirus? Definitely not. They just want to jump into the prime minister's chair. At the same time, the same Arthur Vanetsyan had a chance, finally, to create a real national National Security Service. Did he use it? Definitely not. He did not succeed in absolutely anything>, the parliamentarian emphasized. Igityan is convinced that it is impossible to build an opposition out of several rejected, offended, and seized by the desire for revenge ambitious participants in criminal cases. The creation of the opposition suggests that other people, society, ideas and programs should stand behind these people.
<Yes, and we have mistakes, but to say that we failed the fight against coronavirus is also not true. Together with other countries, together with the rest of the world, we learn from our mistakes and those of others. And go ahead. And it's not Gagik Tsarukyan who will give us an assessment, the people will give us an assessment - in the next parliamentary elections. None of us clings to chairs and a mandate. But let me, demand early elections in a similar situation - a gamble. In other countries, people cannot even hold regular elections. Thank God that today we are not even confronted with this problem,> Igityan concluded.
