PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian National Movement board chair Aram Manukyan stressed the need for public engagement in the political struggle in his speech during Armenian National Congress (ANC) rally on March 30.
“There must be no indifferent citizens,” he said.
Commenting on authorities’ refusal to register Khachatur Sukiasyan in N 10 constituency, he noted that continued impolicy pursued by the authorities will spark further callousness of Sukiasyan’s supporters.
Khachatur Sukiasyan, in turn, thanked the public for the support extended to him for the recently years, noting his readiness to implement all the reforms the country is in need of, despite the fact he has not been registered.
The Central Election Commission of Armenia refused to instigate administrative proceedings on oppositionist Khachatur Sukiasyan’s application.
Oppositionist oligarch, supporter of Levon Ter-Petrossian, the leader of the Armenian National Congress (ANC), Khachatur Sukiasyan planned to run for the Armenian National Assembly in No. 10 single-mandate constituency of the capital.
Mr. Sukiasyan was refused in registration of his candidacy, citing the reason that he had not permanently resided in Armenia for the past five years.
It is noteworthy that president of Nushikyan Association Garegin Nushikyan will stand for parliament in the same constituency.
