Hovannisian Planning Alternative ‘Inauguration=?UTF-8?B?4oCZ?=

Opposition leader Raffi Hovannisian confirmed on Tuesday plans to try to overshadow President Serzh Sarkisian’s upcoming inauguration for a second term in office with a similar ceremony to be held in a key Yerevan square.

Sarkisian will be sworn in on April 9 at a special session of the Armenian parliament which is due to be attended by not only lawmakers but also hundreds of other dignitaries. The inauguration will take place at Yerevan’s largest concert hall in accordance with the official results of the February 18 presidential election that gave victory to the incumbent.

Hovannisian, who considers himself the legitimate election winner, has been urging supporters to converge on the city’s Liberty Square on April 9 for the “inauguration of a new Armenia” since launching a new nationwide campaign of street protests on Monday.
