Our state is dying, its salvation is above any law - Vazgen Manukyan

"We are patient and quite educated nation for reconciling ourselves with the fact that we have lost a significant part of the motherland, our army is broken, we have lost thousands of young people, Aliyev speaks about Armenians with disdain. We are ignored," the candidate for the post of interim prime minister Vazgen Manukyan stated during the rally on Baghramyan Avenue. 

He noted that those who demand Pashinyan's resignation and are not attending the Saturday rally are more than the ones who are participating in the rally. "I call on you if you want to join, do so. If you want to cooperate, do so. Otherwise, start your own initiatives and make own decisions. There is no time to wait, as our state is dying in front of our eyes. Our nation is dying," Manukyan stated. 

He once again pointed to the need of snap elections for the people to elect their leaders, but in elections not organised with Pashinyan in power. The latter, per Manukyan, has neither moral right nor ability for organizing fair elections. "What elections can be organised in a police state. Our country is no more a democratic state, but a police one," said Manukyan. 

The opposition leader called on the Army, saying whole Armenia stands behind it and much depends on it. 

"You should not obey to any order as to what this Court may rule. Our state is dying and its salvation is above any law," said Manukyan, adding: "Let us be civilized, patient but moderate. People are said have no right to rebel. Who said that? If people are being killed should they obey to that act? We should stand on our feet, recover, unite and win. Nation, Army, Victory!" Manukyan concluded his speech at the rally.
