Richard Giragosian: "Kocharian is a political ghost and Prosperous Armenia, a political corpse"

16:03, March 5, 2013

At a press conference today in Yerevan, Regional Studies Center Director Richard Giragosian called Robert Kocharian a “political ghost” and the Prosperous Armenia Party a “political corpse”.

Kocharian was Armenia’s second president and Prosperous Armenia is a party headed by the Armenian business tycoon Gagik Tsarukyan.

The analyst told reporters that it wasn’t clear if the political opposition in Armenia had a specific strategic plan or not.

Giragosian did credit Raffi Hovannisian for injecting a new political set of tactics into Armenia by taking his message to towns and rural communities outside of Yerevan. He said that residents in the provinces are mostly overlooked by Armenian politicians in non-election years.
