Dashnaktsutyun Says No Progress On Opposition Election Bloc

November 30, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

The Armenian Revolutionary Federation (Dashnaktsutyun) and other major opposition force have made no progress so far towards the possible nomination of a joint candidate for the upcoming presidential election, a Dashnaktsutyun leader said on Friday.

Armen Rustamian said his party has yet to drum up broad-based opposition support for support for constitutional and other major changes which it believes should be enacted in Armenia.

Earlier this month the opposition party unveiled a 7-point pre-election “agenda” that calls for Armenia’s transformation into a parliamentary republic, the holding of parliamentary elections on the solely party list basis, independence of the national judicial system and separation of big business from government. The document also envisages a “military- political alliance” between Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh and the annulment of the 2009 Turkish-Armenian protocols strongly opposed by Dashnaktsutyun.
