YEREVAN, April 2. / ARKA /. The ruling Republican Party of Armenia is not dismayed by the plans of the parliamentary minority to stage joint rallies later this month in support of a vote of no confidence in the government they are seeking in parliament, Artak Davtyan, an MP from the ruling party, told a news conference today.
The minority parties are the Armenian Revolutionary Federation/Dashnaktsutyun, the Armenian National Congress, the Prosperous Armenia Party and the Heritage Party. They are going to propose the motion of censure on April 28.
The opposition parties said they would stage rallies on April 28-30 to heighten the pressure on the pro-government majority.
“It's hard to say what will happen in 26 days. Let us wait and see. Maybe, the motion will not reach the floor. In any case, I stand for meaningful discussion of any issue, “said Davtyan.
In turn, MP Mikael Melkumyan from the Prosperous Armenia Party, said the minority political forces are developing a program of action, the result of which will be evident in the near future.
"This government has failed. We are developing a program to overcome the current difficult socio- economic situation,” he said. -0-
