The MP was confident the party won’t be joining opposition forces in nominating a single candidate. He also refused to inform whether the party’s planning to nominate its own candidate, noting that the decision-making is in progress.

Also, he expressed surprise over recent reports suggesting ex-Foreign Minister Vartan Oskanian can run for a president.

“Prosperous Armenia never mentioned it as a possibility,” he said.
