ArmInfo. Former President of Armenia Robert Kocharian will not be able to reincarnate into power, even under the guise of "the savior of the nation." A member of the parliamentary faction Arusyak Julhakyan expressed a similar opinion to ArmInfo.
"We know that Kocharian made attempts at his own political reincarnation, starting from the period of presidency of Serzh Sargsyan. For obvious reasons, then these attempts were not made as persistently as today. He also made disguised attempts to return during the days of the revolution, in the period after the change of power in the country, "she recalled.
Today, according to Julhakyan, such attempts by Robert Kocharian have finally found the soil so desired for the former president, and he is trying to take advantage of the situation by presenting himself to the public in the guise of a man who intends to save the country. Nevertheless, in the opinion of the pro- government parliamentarian, this very society has a very good memory - people perfectly remember all the "charms" and all the consequences of his ruling the country.
On the whole, Julhakyan assesses the striving of Kocharian and other forces "rejected" by the people for revenge as quite natural and normal. According to her, these processes began directly with the change of power in 2018 and in post-war Armenia, for obvious reasons, received an additional impetus. The lawmaker is much more worried about the fact that over the past three years new political forces have not formed and have not taken shape in Armenia.
"I say this with great regret. Over the recent period, new political parties have appeared in the country, in the ranks of which there are very worthy people. But, unfortunately, apparently, three years was not enough for their full-fledged formation for a number of reasons.
Meanwhile, we would very much like to see these political figures as our opponents in the future parliament. We, in turn, are ready to do and will do our best so that the upcoming elections are held at the highest level, democratic, transparent and fair, "Julhakyan summed up.
To note, on May 10, Armenian President Armen Sarkissian signed a decree on the appointment of early parliamentary elections for June 20. Earlier, the lawmakers did not vote for the candidacy of Nikol Pashinyan for the post of prime minister for the second time in order to hold early parliamentary elections in the country. Pashinyan's party "Civil Contract" will participate in the early parliamentary elections independently.
