ArmInfo.Funds were raised in favor of the National Congress party at an election party on August 23.
The candidate for mayor from the party running in the elections to the Council of Elders of Yerevan under number 7, the former head of the city administration Hayk Marutyan, presenting the main goal and principles of his team in the upcoming elections, noted that there are two main reasons for participating in the elections. <One of them is the city with its many problems. During our three years of management, we have created systems that should work for many years. After my unjustified impeachment, I regret that these reforms, unfortunately, have slowed down, and many processes have started to go in the opposite direction. It is necessary to go back and continue the reform process with a new impetus. We and our children should live in a comfortable, safe and developing city. There is no alternative to this>, said Hayk Marutyan.
According to him, the second reason for participating in the elections is the political situation. According to Marutyan, after the 2018 revolution, the public, excited by the prospect of change, was waiting for serious reforms. Progress has now slowed or stopped on many fronts, and in some cases has begun to go in the wrong direction. According to Hayk Marutyun, the current political situation in the country is very beneficial for "traditional" political forces. The government blames the parliamentary opposition that criticizes it for sins and crimes committed in the past, while the opposition blames the government for failures in domestic and foreign policy.
"The government and the parliamentary opposition are thus playing political ping-pong, keeping public discourse at a primitive level, which is not in the interests of the state," the mayoral candidate concluded.
During the meeting, the team members presented individual items of the party's election program.
