ArmInfo. The actions of people demanding the resignation of the prime minister on the Republic Square have practically nothing to do with the "velvet revolution." Sociologist Karen Sargsyan expressed this opinion to ArmInfo.
"16" says and demands something completely different. And they are still trying to gather a critical mass on the street. The only commonality with 2018 is the similarity of the "Armenia without Nikol" and "Take a step - reject Serzh" slogans. Thus, the opposition is trying to personify the problem in the person of Pashinyan, arguing that as soon as he leaves, everything will be fine. However, I have to disappoint - nothing will change with his resignation," he stressed.
According to the sociologist, the problems of Armenia are of a systemic nature and a single person, even in the prime minister's office, is unable to solve even one of these problems. In this light, Sargsyan considers Pashinyan's remark that whoever was in his place would not change the situation with Artsakh, as quite rightly. Attaching the utmost importance to the educational qualification of the Armenian society, the sociologist stressed the need to realize as a fact that the fighters striving to take the House of Government have nothing to do with reality. According to him, the people who are speaking on the Republic Square today have no political past and act more like social activists. Accordingly, one should not even expect from them justification, thoughtfulness of their own words.
"The way that these people speak is unacceptable. However, it is necessary to record that such a "political culture" has become a part of our life thanks to the "velvet" revolution and it is necessary to get rid of that "achievement" somehow. The same insults to the opposition from the offices of parliament are unacceptable. At least, this is evidence of the quality of today's parliament. In reality, all today's problems began with the last parliamentary elections. But here, too, the "My Step" bloc is not to blame, we are all to blame, our society is to blame," Sargsyan summed up.
