Secretary of the Armenian National Congress (ANC) Aram Manukyan told reporters on Friday that the four non-coalition parliamentary forces are not yet demanding the Armenian government’s resignation.
“We consider it one of our steps now, which does not at all mean deviating from the main agenda. Our program thesis, number one political aim is Serzh Sargsyan’s resignation.”
As to the formation of Armenia’s new government, with the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) constituting a parliamentary majority, Manukyan said the Constitution regulates this issue.
“It is up to the authorities and Serzh Sargsyan to decide. They will do what they want. Our position is clear: Levon Ter-Petrosyan has stated the ANC will not participate even if a proposal for a new government is made. It is up to our colleagues to decide. We are not going to interfere, but such a scenario is unlikely.”
