Armenian Revolutionary Federation/Dashnaktsutyun will not be part of new government

YEREVAN, April 17. / ARKA /. The Armenian Revolutionary Federation/Dashnaktsutyun (ARF) said in a statement today that it will not be part of a new Armenian government. One of the oldest Armenian parties blamed the deteriorating social and economic conditions of the vast majority of citizens on the authorities’ policies. “The vast majority of our citizens has lost confidence in the future and demand fundamental reforms. We are convinced that the existing problems can be solved only through the formation of an atmosphere of solidarity and social and political consolidation," the statement reads. The statement says the ARF has formulated its ideas about how to build a new, effective and just state in a seven-point package and will be pressing for its implementation "We are confident that a step -by-step implementation of this package will pull our country out of the difficult situation and secure a free and prosperous life for the citizens .. The ARF will be watching carefully the authorities’ performance and the degree of our cooperation with the government will be contingent on its success in the implementation of this package. The party also intends to continue its activities in the opposition camp," the statement says. On Sunday the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) nominated speaker Hovik Abrahamyan for the premier’s post, to replace Tigran Sargsyan who resigned on April 3. Later in the day, the president Serzh Sargsyan appointed Abrahamyan as premier. According to the Constitution, the government is formed within twenty days after the premier is appointed. -0-
