Acting PM Nikol Pashinyan invites former presidents Levon Ter-Petrosyan and Robert Kocharyan to a debate on June 18, two days before elections.
“It is easy to be a man in closed halls. You will come, we will stand in front of each other and talk, you will give an explanation of why Karabakh (Artsakh) was left out of the negotiation process in 1997,” said acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan during a meeting with his supporters at the Civil Contract Party office in Aparan.
Pashinyan said “these elections are a very good opportunity for the citizen of the Republic of Armenia to take civil revenge for the rigged elections after 1996. Because in those elections the citizen’s vote was taken away and all the actors who took that vote are in fact participating in this election. On the contrary, the citizen must re-establish his power, and in order to re-establish that power, the Civil Contract Party needs to get 60% of the votes, and I hope that the citizen will make that decision.”
