Paper says Prosperous Armenia reps backing current leader

PanARMENIAN.Net - According to Haykakan Zhamanak daily, a number of Prosperous Armenia representatives are visiting the campaign headquarters of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA), with former minister of urban development Vardan Vardanyan and former minister of healthcare Harutyun Kushkyan among them.

In response to the paper’s question if the move implies a decision to back the current leader Serzh Sargsdyan, Mr Vardanyan said, “the visit pursued another goal.”

“Thus, Prosperous Armenia members prove to have resolved to back Serzh Sargsyan despite the party’s official decision,” the paper says.
