PanARMENIAN.Net – The candidate for Prime Minister from “I Have Honor” bloc, former Director of the National Security Service Artur Vanetsyan on Sunday, June 20 voted “for the future of Armenia and Artsakh” (Nagorno-Karabakh), Aysor.am reports.
Vanetsyan maintained that the current authorities are in agony and that all their steps are aimed at weakening the opposition. According to him, the ruling elite understand that they have no chance of reproduction and “are making every effort to cling to power”.
The candidate for PM also noted that he expects no post-vote developments: “The election results will show who will form the government in Armenia.”
Acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan announced on March 18 that Armenia will hold snap parliamentary elections on June 20. The PM came under fire after signing a statement with the Russian and Azerbaijani Presidents to end the war in Nagorno-Karabakh almost 45 days after the start of the military hostilities. Under the deal, the Armenian side was forced to return all the seven regions surrounding Karabakh, having lost a part of Karabakh itself in hostilities.
