Ex-Oppositionists Back Sarkisian=?UTF-8?B?4oCZ?=s Reelection

Two former Armenian opposition parties led by veteran politicians on Monday confirmed that they support President Serzh Sarkisian’s reelection plans.

The National Accord Party of Artashes Geghamian and Hayk Babukhanian’s Union for Constitutional Rights had for years been in opposition to successive Armenian governments, of which Sarkisian was a key member.

Geghamian and Babukhanian pledged allegiance to Sarkisian when he succeeded Robert Kocharian as president in 2008. They both were elected to parliament in last month’s elections on the ruling Republican Party’s ticket.

Commenting on the upcoming presidential election, Geghamian pointed out that he first voiced support for the incumbent president’s reelection in February 2012 and reaffirmed that statement last month. He said his party will therefore support Sarkisian in next month’s ballot.
