Vote 2013: Search for single candidate still on as Armenia gets ready for presidential campaign

January 18, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

While many political analysts believe that the presidential election scheduled for February 18 will be the day of re-election for current head of state Serzh Sargsyan, the candidates running against him continue to seek avenues to mount a challenge to the incumbent.

National Self-Determination Union (NSDU) Chairman Paruyr Hayrikyan has declared his readiness to become a single candidate “if all presidential candidates who are included to unite prove really ready to restrain their ambitions for the establishment of an influential reformist force.”

At a press conference on Thursday Hayrikyan, a Soviet-era dissident, said that he considered consolidation around programs to be a necessary condition for an ultimate united platform.
