Ter-Petrosian Dismisses Hovannisian=?UTF-8?B?4oCZ?=s Rallies, Woos ‘Oligarchs=?UTF-8?B?4oCZ?=

Former President Levon Ter-Petrosian defended over the weekend his decision not to join post-election demonstrations held by rival opposition leader Raffi Hovannisian, saying that they never posed a serious threat to Armenia’s government.

Speaking at the founding congress of a new opposition party founded by him, Ter-Petrosian also again defended his controversial strategy of seeking cooperation with the Prosperous Armenia Party (BHK) of Gagik Tsarukian. He said turning “oligarchs” like Tsarukian against President Serzh Sarkisian is vital for regime change in the country.

“Everyone must understand once and for all that we are a political party, a political force and we join and support solely political processes. In these post-election events we have seen everything but a political process,” Ter-Petrosian said, referring to the anti-government street protests staged by Hovannisian since the February 18 presidential election.
