Next nationwide election to bypass ruling party in Armenia – Tsarukyan
YEREVAN, May 6. /ARKA/. The leader of Prosperous Armenia party Gagik Tsarukyan said the next nationwide elections in the country will leave Melik-Adamyan street where the office of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia is, aside.

Earlier the vice-speaker of the parliament Eduard Sharmazanov said the only way to Armenian president’s and premier’s posts is through Melik-Adamyan street.
The meeting discussed also the party’s position on the new government program to be submitted to the parliament in May.
Tsarukyan said no changes will occur in the party’s political line and urged the members to actively work with all strata of the society.
The next nationwide election in Armenia, election to the National Assembly, is to be held in 2017.
