It’s very positive that RPA and PAP did not form a formal coalition - political scientist Suren Surenyants.
It’s very positive that RPA and PAP did not form a formal coalition, political scientist Suren Surenyants said, commenting on PAP leader Gagik Tsarukyan’s statement saying PAP is not joining the coalition government.
At the same time, the expert told reporters that he cannot imagine PAP as anything but a pro-government party.
According to Surenyants, following Tsarukyan’s decision not to join the coalition, some members are likely to leave Prosperous Armenia Party.
As for possible domestic political developments, the expert ruled out the possibility that either PAP or any other party may link its name with Robert Kocharyan because it will discredit the given party.
It is hardly probable that PAP will nominate Vartan Oskanian to run for president, Surenyants said in response to a question and added that Oskanian is a failure as a political figure.
