Analyst: 2012 has taken politics from street to parliament

December 24, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Political analyst Alexander Iskandaryan considers last May parliamentary’s elections to be the most important political event in Armenia in the ending year as, according to him, it managed to take politics “from the street to parliament”.

At a Monday press conference summing up the political results of 2012, Iskandaryan, who heads the Caucasus Institute in Yerevan, said that the parliamentary elections have changed the political landscape of the country, as for the first time in the history of independent Armenia all major political forces gained representation in the National Assembly.

Remarkably, the opposition Armenian National Congress, which had staged regular rallies and demonstrations before the May vote, has not held a single major public rally since being elected to the legislature in May.
