Snap elections in Armenia primarily a geopolitical choice for country’s development, ex-deputy PM says

Armenia’s former Deputy Prime Minister Armen Gevorgyan reflected on developments in the region, the upcoming snap parliamentary elections in Armenia and possible scenarios in a post on Telegram.

“Visible and invisible processes are taking place around us. I mean not only in Armenia, but also in Russia, the CSTO and our neighboring countries in general.

“Today there were reports of military clashes on the border between two members of the CSTO –  Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Tensions in the zone of Russia's strategic interests are growing. This is a very clear tactic to dissociate the capabilities and resources of Russia to the maximum,” he wrote.

Gevorgyan stated it will not come as a surprise to him if Turkey turns out to be behind the escalation.

“Life shows that the tensions in the zone of Russia's strategic interests will only grow. Our allied relations presuppose that Armenia must be a strong and reliable partner in order to be able to fulfill not only its own, but also allied commitments. The upcoming elections are first and foremost a geopolitical choice for the country's development,” the ex-official said.

He expressed conviction all political forces are ready to run in early parliamentary elections supposed to be held on June 20, adding no matter what the polls show, everyone is ready for struggle.

“I am concerned that many participants in the process will forget to point to the catastrophic results of Nikol Pashinyan's rule, the causes and consequences of the 44-day war. They will not discuss new programs and ideas, but will focus on discrediting individuals, denigrating the past and distancing the future from us.

“It is obvious that stability and settlement of the political crisis in the country will come only after Pashinyan leaves office.

“Until that, we will remain in a situation of constant chaos and possible civil upheaval, the economic crisis will deepen, migration will increase and security will weaken,” Gevorgyan said.
