“Clan Fight=?UTF-8?B?4oCd?=: Analysts see PAP-RPA standoff as oligarchic showdown

December 7, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

The confrontation between Armenia’s two major political forces has shifted to mutual accusations baring the existing contradictions and implying that Gagik Tsarukyan’s nomination for presidential candidacy is an almost unavoidable prospect. Experts say, however, that this is rather a “clan war” than a political battle and the outcome will be dictated by external forces.

Prosperous Armenia party (PAP) leader Tsarukyan’s European “adventures” have heightened the tensions springing from what’s becoming fierce domestic political fight.

Tsarukyan’s visit to Brussels where he voiced sharp criticism against president Serzh Sargsyan’s administration, saying there should be no expectation of curtailing corruption in Armenia so long as the country itself was led by corrupt authorities, coincided with one of the European Parliament’s major political forces, European People’s Party (EPP) leaders’ summit in Yerevan.
