Armenia’s non-ruling ‘quadruple’ says it can implement systemic changes avoiding shocks
YEREVAN, July 3. /ARKA/. The non-ruling ‘quadruple’ is able to implement systemic changes in Armenia avoiding shocks, secretary of the Armenian National Congress (ANC) opposition faction Aram Manukyan said after the meeting of the ‘quadruple’ on Wednesday.
‘We aim not at abrupt moves and shocks, but at systemic changes by peaceful means. We urged the authorities to show sound mind and implement the 12 provisions we have submitted’, Manukyan said.
On June 10, the non-ruling factions of the Armenian parliament, Prosperous Armenia, Dashnaktsutiun, Heritage and the ANC, submitted 12 economic, political and social requirements to the authorities to be met by the end of September 2014. The quadruple is going to hold an all-national rally on the Liberty Square in September to report on the status of the requirements and further steps.
Head of Heritage faction Ruben Hakobyan said the ‘quadruple’ is the factor balancing Armenia’s political life today. The ‘quadruple’ may become an alternative power and is ready to implement what the programs of the four political forces envisage, he said.
Prosperous Armenia faction deputy Mickael Melkumyan stressed the ‘quadruple’ is prepared to lead the society toward changes, ruling out social shocks and crashes.
Head of ARF Dashnaktsutiun faction Armen Rustamyan, in his turn, said the ‘quadruple’ intends to closely cooperate with the civil society later. –0—
