Former President Robert Kocharian on Wednesday responded to the latest verbal attacks from opposition leader Levon Ter-Petrosian and admitted disagreeing with some of the decisions made by his successor Serzh Sarkisian.
Kocharian also said he made a mistake by not imprisoning Ter-Petrosian after forcing Armenia’s first president to resign in 1998.
If we try to sum up the whole series of the threats, admonitions, proposals and promises voiced by L. Ter-Petrosyan, we will see that they are gradually becoming milder in tone on the one hand, and on the other hand, the “extramural monologue” is acquiring more and more serious contents.
Along with making threats and boastful statements, Ter-Petrosyan also advances proposals and even pronounces words of laudation which, however, start contradicting the previously-made statements. In the recent period, Ter-Petrosyan has managed to deliver three speeches during his rallies organized in Yerevan (June 20 and July 4) and Gyumri (June 28). The ex-President has also managed to introduce his own viewpoints through his Press Secretary.
The fact that the leaders of the “pan-national” movement are not very attentive towards their words is not a secret.
For the last one-week these people terrify us saying that the demonstration of July 4 will be “decisive”.
But the meeting hold yesterday in front of Matenadaran was not only far from being decisive or continuous, but the participants of the meeting also showed that their leader is groping in vagueness.
If Pan-National Movement consists of 7000 people what’s a point to consider movement as a serious opposition? What’s a hell to take them serious? Less than 1 percent of Yerevan people attend the rally, so this should be called Pan-National Movement? Stop it,please:)
Think,that any more or less popular singer in Armenia could consider himself as a serious opposition also could claim government for the dialogue on the different topics?
Ter-Petrosyan has already evacuated his family,what’s reason for people to support this guy? He doesn’t care about you people…
