Vote 2013: Sargsyan reelection bid appears unimpeded following Tsarukyan=?UTF-8?B?4oCZ?=s decision

Most political analysts in Armenia consider the outcome of the upcoming presidential election to be almost a foregone conclusion after Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP) leader Gagik Tsarukyan bowed out of the forthcoming race.

The local political thought seems to come to consensus that President Serzh Sargsyan will get an easy reelection in the February 18 vote in the absence of such a political heavyweight, while no new no-nonsense challenge has emerged yet.

After months of speculation about his possible presidential bid tycoon Tsarukyan told his party on Wednesday that he would not join the fray after all, leading PAP to decide not to name a candidate at all, while also withholding support to any other presidential hopeful.
