Acting PM Karapetyan doesn’t accept the format on electing people’s candidate as proposed by opposition MP Pashinyan
STEPANAKERT, APRIL 25, ARTSAKHPRESS-ARMENPRESS:“I don’t know any country where people’s candidate is elected in that way, there are elections for that purpose. Now for one citizen someone is acceptable, and for the other another figure is acceptable, so what to do? The people’s candidate is not being elected in this way. I propose to hold snap parliamentary elections, and if he is the people’s candidate, he will come [to power]”, the acting PM said.
He said it would be better for the political forces to meet and discuss the current situation, and for this purpose a platform is being proposed.
“We have developed laws, Constitution, we cannot get out of this field. It’s not so that everything is being done by the will, dictation of one political force, everyone must sit and decide how to hold snap elections. The laws say so, the people’s candidate is being elected by elections, the choice is the election, if you know a country that is being elected in another way, please tell me”, the acting PM said, adding that it is maximally necessary to return to normal life.
