Analyst: New parliament and new government will be just transitional  stages

ArmInfo.Already today we can register that following the results of the early elections in  Armenia, a parliament was formed, controlled by external forces.  Independent analyst Saro Saroyan expressed this opinion to ArmInfo.

"This parliament contains pro-Russian forces. Forces that are  different in their management methods, but the same in their content  and essence. And this external controllability is designed to solve  external problems and tasks unresolved by the previous parliament.  And here the former Presidents Kocharian and Sargsyan will play a  role. The confrontation between them and Pashinyan over the past two  months will now move into the walls of parliament and affect all  institutions of power in order to resolve the agenda of external  forces somehow connected with Armenia, "he said.

The situation around the Syunik region, in the analyst's opinion, is  the first example of this. The geopolitical significance of this  region is mainly determined by the "Zangezur Corridor", as it is  called in Baku and Ankara. And control over this corridor is a task  that must be realized both by Turkey and Azerbaijan, and by Russia.  That was very difficult under the conditions of the previous  parliament. The former parliament, in the analyst's opinion, was  unable to solve such problems, first of all, due to its own inability  to present to society a logical sequence in favor of the  implementation of such a scenario.  According to Saroyan's estimates,  it is precisely the tough confrontation between the two poles-  Pashinyan and Kocharyan - inside Armenia that serves as a guarantee  of their dependence on external levers, prompting them to move in the  direction of the implementation of these plans. "In this light, it  seems it is necessary to understand how this clash will end now in  the walls of the new parliament.

In this light, he noted the difference between the positioning of the  "Civil Treaty" and the way this force builds relations with Russia in  practice - almost never deviating from the Russian orbit. In  Saroyan's opinion, Pashinyan and his entourage are called "Soros" in  Moscow for the sole purpose of facilitating the implementation of the  Russian agenda in Armenia. All this Armenian society observed during  last year's war, this is happening now, and within the framework and  with the help of the new parliament, this will happen in the near  future.

"But here one important question arises - will all this not lead to  an increase in anti-Russian sentiments in Armenia? Subsequently, the  second question arises - will the West take advantage of this in the  future? I am convinced that the current bacchanalia will not remain  without consequences and may well lead to the formation of completely  new geopolitical realities, "he stressed.

All this, in the analyst's opinion, leaves a deep mark on public  sentiment. And here, he believes, it is important to emphasize that  the generation of anti-Russian sentiments in Armenia has not yet  reached its culmination. And that is why it is necessary to look at  the situation not only in the short term, but also in the long term.  "Accordingly, we can conclude that in terms of reflecting public  sentiments and their further projection on geopolitics, the new  parliament and the new government will only be transitional stages,"  the analyst concluded.  It should be reminded that according to the  preliminary results of the early parliamentary elections held on June  20 in Armenia, after the CEC counted votes from all 2008 precincts,  the acting party won-Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan "Civil  Contract" gained - 53.92% - 687,251 votes. Pashinyan won in all  regions of Armenia, including Yerevan. Of the remaining 25 political  forces that took part in the elections, only the bloc of former  President of Armenia Robert Kocharian "Armenia" will be represented  in the new parliament - 21.04% - 268,165 votes and, as provided by  law, the third force, which has gained 5.23% is the "I Have the  Honor" bloc.  All other political forces together collected 15.7%. Of  the 2.578 million citizens eligible to vote, 1,281,174 or 49.4% of  voters took part in the voting.
