Wooing the Europeans?: Tsarukyan=?UTF-8?B?4oCZ?=s visit to Brussels regarded in context of upcoming presidential vote

December 5, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

On Tuesday leader of the Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP) Gagik Tsarukyan started a two-day visit to Brussels to meet with senior representatives of the European Parliament, the European Commission, the Agency for Foreign Affairs, parliamentarians as well as leaders of the local Armenian community.

The visit by Tsarukyan (officially heading a PAP delegation) to the political heart of Europe fueled speculation in Armenia that it was connected with his long-awaited decision on the format of his and his party’s participation in the 2013 presidential election.

PAP has the second largest faction in the Armenian parliament and many local experts believe this party’s position will largely predetermine the course and outcome of the February presidential election, in which the ruling Republican Party’s candidate for reelection will be incumbent President Serzh Sargsyan.
