Expert forecasts political struggle following Armenian elections

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian political expert Karen Kocharyan forecasts no serious changes following the presidential vote.

“A political struggle will be waged right after the polls between the two wings of the ruling authorities,” he said, adding that Prosperous Armenia’s comeback will be in the focus of the discussions.

“Serious processes are expected both within the opposition and the government,” Mr Kocharyan said.

Asked by a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter if the second president of Armenia Robert Kocharian may run for president in 2018, the expert didn’t rule out the option.

“The first president of Armenia Levon Ter-Petrossian said nothing about his return ten years ago,” he said.
