ArmInfo.The absence of systemic reforms and changes in Armenia is the result of the absence of differences between the representatives of the "former authorities" and the current government. A similar opinion was expressed to ArmInfo by public and political figure Garegin Miskaryan.
"We are talking about the absence of differences in terms of professed values. This is the whole problem of the current government and, accordingly, society. This is the basis of all these bonuses, preferences and pocket money ", existing and planned social benefits of MPs, officials and others- from the representatives of power up to the president and the prime minister, "he stressed.
The absence of differences in the value orientations of the current government and its predecessors, in Miskaryan's opinion, lends consistency to its current actions and domestic policy. According to him, in absolute terms, the difference between the current government and its predecessors boils down to the fact that, unlike the latter, the incumbent government is trying to get material benefits - state budget funds in order to ensure its own well-being in an exclusively legal way.
Against this background, the society, in Miskaryan's opinion, must finally realize that it is possible and necessary to change the current situation only through its involvement in the process of governing the state. Without public participation, any ruling political force, according to his estimates, will differ very little from the "former" and current ones. He also stressed the need for public control over the decision-making process by the authorities. Miskaryan is convinced that reforming in all sectors of public life and activities, the emergence of ideas, programs, values, the decentralization of state administration, the branching of power into executive, legislative and judicial are possible only as a result of public demand. Including due to the professional unsuitability and inability of the current government to implement these reforms, even if it has a desire to do so. "It is impossible to achieve the formation of Armenia as a state just by the participation of citizens in electoral processes, a tick given to one or another politician for his ability to speak fluently. Control over the government is now a necessity. Otherwise, we will finally lose everything that we still have. Take a look on the ongoing elections to local self-government bodies, which have already boiled down to a struggle of resources with the use of administrative levers, authorities of various stripes and calibers. And all this with one goal - to strengthen their own power, "Miskaryan summed up.
