Pre-electional situation in Armenia or «the ice is breaking»

ImageThe forthcoming presidential elections in Armenia intend to be the most unpredictable in the history of the country. There are only 2 days left before the elections, however you can’t be 100 percent sure who is going to become the third president of the RA. Anyway, we can say that the elections will probably come about two phases.

The elections of the head of the country in Armenia will take place on the 19-th of February. There are 9 candidates for the post of the president. But the main struggle takes place between the candidate of the ruling elite - Serj Sarkisyan (Republican party of Armenia), who, by the way, hasn’t gone on a pre-election vacation, and continues to work as a prime minister; and the first president of RA, the candidate of the opposition - Levon Ter-Petrosyan. On the 9-th of February a huge rally (100.000 people) was held in the Freedom Square in support of the first president. Some analytics already build forecasts concerning the possible ways solution of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict by Levon Ter-Petrosyan in case of his election.

We must add that new parties continue to join the first president. Recently the “Heritage” party (the leader of the party is Raffi Hovhannisyan) announced about their decision to support the candidature of the ex-president Levon Ter-Petrosyan on the upcoming elections. The oppositional party “New times” (leader Aram Karapetyan) has also announced that is going to support the candidacy of Levon Ter-Petrosyan on the elections. So, just a few days before the elections, number of the political forces, supporting the first president, became more than twenty. A number of members of the second ruling party “Prosperous Armenia” also took the side of Levon Ter-Petrosyan. Some members of ARF Dashnakcutyun also announced about supporting Levon Ter-Petrosyan on the elections. They declared, - ”We appeal to put aside ideological disagreements for some time and to vote for the first president Levon Ter-Petrosyan”.

The oppositional “Orinac Erkir” party (the leader of the party is Arthur Baghdasaryan) made a decision that his party would return to the question of joining one of the candidates after the first phase of the elections.

The author of these lines has written a lot of times, about what will happen in the region of Southern Caucasus in case of the election of Levon Ter-Petrosyan on the post of the president of the Republic of Armenia. The candidature of Levon Ter-Petrosyan as the president of Armenia is advantageous in the sphere of fast solution of Nagorno Karabakh conflict and the question of armenian-turkish relations, which are the key problems and obstacles on the way of establishment of peace and prosperity in our region and the solution of which will unlock Armenia and change the alignment of forces in the region.

However, there is one more interesting detail that I’d like to underline about the inter-political and public situation in Armenia concerning the returning of Levon Ter-Petrosyan into the political arena. The thing is that despite the results of the upcoming presidential elections in Armenia, returning of Levon Ter-Petrosyan on the political stage and the following pre-electional developments in Armenia stirred the Armenian society, which began to look on the incidents of the latest past in different way. This shows changes in the social consciousness and in my opinion this is the index of the aspiration to the changes in the Armenian society.
