The people want it [the snap parliamentary election] in December, so we want [it] too; we have no such problem.
Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP) Chairman, head of the “Tsarukyan” Faction at the National Assembly, tycoon Gagik Tsarukyan, said the aforementioned during a TV interview.
Tsarukyan informed that he will meet with the country’s extra-parliamentary forces, with those that have not collaborated with second and third Presidents Robert Kocharyan and Serzh Sargsyan, respectively.
The PAP leader assured that even if they were part of the government before, this has changed nothing for him.
When asked whether this means that he has not joined the “counterrevolution,” Gagik Tsarukyan responded: “I have been for the revolution, and I will do more today; the accountability is upon me. Five thousand investors are coming [to Armenia] from 25 countries for investments.”
The tycoon MP explained that the flow of investors into Armenia has stopped not because there is no snap parliamentary election in the country yet, but for a completely different reason.
“Mr. Prime Minister [Nikol Pashinyan] should seek those counter revolutionary people in his [own political] team,” he added, in particular.
Tsarukyan noted that his faction had allocated one-third of the votes needed for Pashinyan to be elected PM in the NA, in the case when he could have nominated his own candidacy to this office.
“I want neither an office, nor money,” the PAP leader added. “What bad thing have I done to my people?”
Also, Gagik Tsarukyan stressed that it is impossible to single-handedly carry out a revolution.
