Ex-Coalition Partners Again Trade Barbs

The ruling Republican Party of Armenia (HHK) and its former coalition partner, Prosperous Armenia (BHK), have launched fresh verbal attacks on each other ahead of mayoral elections in Yerevan in which they are expected to be the main contenders.

Senior HHK and BHK lawmakers on Thursday followed up on a war of words between the youth wings of the two parties that broke out recently on online social networks. Young HHK figures reacted furiously to renewed harsh criticism of the Armenian government voiced by their former allies.

“They should have criticized the government and spoken of problems when they were part of the coalition,” said Hovannes Sahakian, the secretary of the HHK’s parliamentary faction, the largest in the National Assembly.
