ArmInfo. Half of the Armenian society did not want to choose between "current exes" and "former exes" and ignored the elections without choice, which speaks of its adequacy. This means there is a high probability that destabilization will be avoided. Artsakh security expert, former adviser to the Artsakh Foreign Minister Hrachya Arzumanyan shares this opinion. The political scientist is convinced that the half of the society that voted rather voted against than for - it was a negative election campaign.
"They voted for Nikol Pashinyan so that Robert Kocharyan would not pass and vice versa. I and not only me wrote more than once about this. Pashinyan and Kocharyan are not identical, but "twin brothers. " One can not win and simply cannot survive without the other. Now, both of them found themselves chained together on the galley of the Armenian parliament, and I am sure, both are happy. As a result, we have a government with weak legitimacy, which will not be able to make sovereign decisions concerning the future of Armenia. This is the government and parliament of post-Soviet times, the power of the ingloriously deceased post-Soviet Armenia. And such power will be engaged exclusively in the past and will be forced a little by the present, but not by the future. The Armenian future will be laid in "pawnshops" and in this matter the authorities and the opposition will be united, "the expert stated. At the same time, Arzumanyan is convinced that the war of 2020 and the elections of 2021 are a consequence of the alliance between the Russian Federation and Turkey, and Kocharyan and Pashinyan are henchmen of the Russian-Turkish alliance - two sides of the same coin.
"The election results are not only the achievement of Pashinyan personally and his party, but also of the Armenian security officials. After the elections, we can safely say that the security forces of Armenia bear no less, but a greater responsibility for the results of the war and the post-war period. Such a result of the war and such power is the choice of the security officials.
Another consequence was the burning in the "election fire" of all "opposition parties" - from the so-called national parties to all others. The Armenian political field was burnt out by the fire of the elections, leaving only two forces that intend to conserve the ended post-Soviet times. the language doesn't feel right to call these "revolutionary" forces conservative, it is necessary to choose another word, "the Armenian expert added.
At the same time, Arzumanyan believes that the field is burnt out and ready for newnseedlings, if you start sowing in a month or two, when the heat subsides.
"There is an opportunity for a truly political thoughts, ideologies and parties. There are certainly several really political parties, but they are rather an exception that proves the rule. Output. We need to prepare for sovereign decisions in Syunik and the next early elections in Yerevan, "the Armenian expert summed up. The CEC summarized data from all 2008 polling stations in Armenia. Three political forces secured serious support from citizens: - Civil Contract Party (53.9%) - Bloc <Armenia> (21%) - Bloc <I Have the Honor!> (5.2%).
The Prosperous Armenia Party took the 4th place, which received 3.9% of the votes. The rest of the political forces together collected only 15.7%. Note that the "Civil Contract" party led by Nikol Pashinyan won in all regions of Armenia, including Syunik and Yerevan.
