Yerevan municipal elections of political, economic importance – Prosperous Armenia candidate

The elections to Yerevan’s Council of Elders are of political and economic importance. They are important to the city as well, Vartan Oskanian, who tops the Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP) list in the upcoming elections to Yerevan’s Council of Elders, told journalists on Monday.The ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) presents the elections as a way of resolving problems of everyday life. “Yerevan’s problems need resolving. If we view Yerevan as a capital of all Armenians, one of the engines of economy, we can understand why a person that was Armenia’s foreign minister for ten years, is seeking the post of Yerevan mayor,” Oskanian said.He regards as “adequate” the PAP’s decision against participating in the Feb. 18 presidential election. On the other hand, the municipal elections are important in terms of ending the authorities’ political monopoly.The presidential election showed the people’s discontent, and the PAP may act as a political and econ omic counterbalance to Armenia’s government if its member is elected Yerevan mayor, Oskanian said.
