ArmInfo. The essence, the whole point of the early elections scheduled for June 20 in Armenia boils down to who will save us - Russia or the West. A similar opinion was expressed by ArmInfo political scientist Stepan Danielyan.
"In the domestic political part of the elections, the discussion mainly revolves around the need to elect a political force that would have no relation to either the current or the former. And if such a force is mentioned, it is already considered a priori as a positive, good force. Even if she has never shown herself anywhere or in anything, it is completely unclear who and from where she is financially supported and what she is going to do when she comes to power," he stressed.
Another" iron " argument of such new forces, the political scientist considers statements about their turn to rule the country. According to Danielyan, almost all such political associations are firmly convinced that it is their turn to be at the helm of power. At the same time, for obvious reasons, these parties, according to the political scientist, refrain from explaining who and on what principle wrote them in the queue for power and where this list is located. In this light, the political scientist assesses the political field in Armenia as being in a degenerate state. Any attempt to bring the discourse out of this state in the field of real political discussion, to question the obvious idiocy of the path about the impossibility of choosing exclusively between "former" and "current", immediately meets with effective opposition. Moreover, the same attempt to somehow refute the reduction of the election to the search for a savior from beyond the horizon puts electoral dogmas at risk and therefore instantly turns the doubter into an enemy.
"Thus, in Armenia today there is an unspoken taboo against any attempt to violate the current desert serenity of thought. That, without any doubt, is due to concern for the safety of the sand-built electoral ambitions. Meanwhile, in reality, there are not even friendly countries in relation to Armenia today, let alone saviors. And in this situation, the political forces claiming power in the pre-election period do not even try to discuss it, not to mention proposals for a way out of this situation. This is just a fantastic situation, " the political scientist concluded.
