Press review

Hraparak: Vartan Oskanian actively engaged in setting up a new party
Sources close to former MP from the Prosperous Armenia Party and Armenia’s former Foreign Minister Vartan Oskanian claim that the process of setting up a new political party is on. Oskanian has solved all the issues starting from human resources to the ideology of and the field where the new party would position itself. However, the main question  - namely obtaining finance sources  - remains open

Oskanian previously charged on money laundering cannot accept financial offers from any source as the dormant criminal case may be surfaced. According to reports, Oskanian is negotiating with certain circles to find clean and secure money, Hraparak newspaper writes.

Zhoghovurd: Dashanktsutyun would fail without a coalition with RPA

Zhoghovurd daily writes that election results of The Armenian Revolutionary Federation – Dashanktsutyun (ARF-D) for the past three nationwide elections show that if ARF-D didn’t  form a coalition with the Republican Party of Armenia, it would probably end in a total fiasco in the 2017 Parliamentary elections.
The daily reminds that in the 2012 Parliamentary election Dashanktsutyun barely passed the 5 percent vote threshold for being represented in the National Assembly. The party didn’t participated at the 2013 Presidential election although considered itself an opposition force.
Thus, according to the paper, without a coalition with Republican Party ARFD would fail in the upcoming parliamentary elections which would result in an inevitable change of the leadership within ARF-D. The aim of RPA- ARFD coalition is to save the ARFD current leadership and keep their influence over their own party, the daily concludes.

Haykakan Zhamanak: The budget will be underperformed this year too
Haykakan Zhamanak newspaper writes, that the Ministry of Finance of Armenia issued a statement on taxes and duties collected in January, 2016. According to that statement, 2.7% less money has been collected this year compared with January, 2015.
“In January, 2016 the state budget received 73.626 billion AMD in form of taxes and duties, compared 75.139 billion received last year. So, basically the incomplete collection recorded last year continues this year as well.
