Non-coalition forces issue demands to government

PanARMENIAN.Net - Four non-coalition forces – ARF Dashnaktsutyun, Prosperous Armenia, Armenian National Congress and Heritage announced a statement of 12 demands on domestic policies, government’s activities, among other issues, Tert.am reported.

The demands included abolition of funded pension contributions; return of previously paid funds; boosting agricultural production; relaunch of Nairit nuke plant and paying salaries to employees; elimination of monopolies; introduction of a 100% proportional electoral system; non-adoption of documents posing a threat to the Nagorno Karabakh Republic.

The four forces held a signing ceremony and stated their intention to hold a “republican rally” to sum up the work.

Armenian National Congress (ANC) party member Levon Zurabyan noted that in drafting the document some of the forces spoke for prompt measures, while others favored gradual steps.

“But we are all concerned over the fate of the country. So the forces with different strategic ideas have to join efforts in involving the people in this program,” Zurabyan said.

According to him, this issue was high on the agenda before the demand for the government’s resignation, which the authorities prevented by the government’s resignation.
