Former Prime Minister Hrant Bagratyan has acknowledged that a convention of his small opposition party due early next week will discuss his possible nomination as a presidential candidate in the February 18 ballot.

Bagratyan, whose Liberty party (2,700 members) is a member of the main opposition Armenian National Congress (ANC) alliance, shared this message via Facebook today, announcing that the gathering of party delegates is scheduled for December 24.

“Our delegates are asking me about the issue on the agenda (as many will be coming from remote areas). I can say that, yes, there is an issue of nominating me as a presidential candidate,” said Bagratyan.
