ArmInfo. Second president of Armenia, leader of the <Hayastan> bloc ("Armenia") Robert Kocharian is not afraid of criminal prosecution. He stated this on June 22 at a press conference, commenting on yesterday's statement by Nikol Pashinyan that, "Armenia has given a steel mandate to the current government, its political team to establish a dictatorship of law and law in the country."
<Do I come across as someone who is afraid of such threats? For three years I have been under such pressure, but I headed the pre-election bloc and we have quite good results and we will be the second political force in parliament," he said.
At the same time, Kocharian does not believe in Pashinyan's readiness to start a political dialogue with all political forces. "Did you see the hand of reconciliation? I don't. This government lied so much that it cannot be trusted," he said, adding that Pashinyan says one thing, immediately after him the members of his team another. According to Kocharyan, they are addressed to the outside world.
According to the former president, if the Pashinyan authorities are really inclined towards dialogue, then at least 6 months they should behave in this way in order to instill confidence in what they say. "I can't believe it, especially at this moment when they want to arrest well-known doctor Armen Charchyan on a ridiculous charge.
And the persons who are responsible for the death of 5 thousand people are trying to arrest the doctor who saved thousands of lives. This is the real face of this government. Their calls have zero value and not only for us, "he said. At the same time, the candidate for prime minister from the <Hayastan> bloc is convinced that if the bloc members nevertheless take parliamentary mandates, then only with a summons to become the future power in the country. "We took the first trenches, we will gain a foothold there until a full-fledged victory," Kocharian said, adding that removing Pashinyan from power will be on his agenda until the national government comes to power in Armenia.
Acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, whose "Civil Contract" party won a convincing victory in the early parliamentary elections, held a meeting with his supporters on Republic Square yesterday. Nikol Pashinyan, during his speech, invited all political forces to start acting from a new simple point, to abandon the vocabulary of foul language.
