Opposition Outlines Position on Government Change

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–The National Accord Alliance outlined possible mechanisms of changing leadership at a rally held Friday in Yerevan.

Leader of the National Self-Determination Union Paruyr Hairkian presented a new conception of dissolution of the parliament and holding new parliamentary elections–which–he said–would be possible after the adoption of a new law on elections–which is being developed by the National Assembly’s standing committee on judicial issues.

He noted that the negotiations he had held with the chairman of the committee Armenian National Movement Edward Yegorian–who is currently in opposition to his own party–served as a basis for adoption of the proposed mechanism.

The National Democratic Union through David Vardanian also presented its ideas. He said that the rally is one of the initial stages of the nationwide protest movement–which will be held in all regions of Armenia–during the week of June 6-13.

During that week marches–manifestations–demonstrations–rallies and sit-down strikes will take place all over Armenia.

"We are trying to unite the people so that the nation pressures the authorities like it pressured it on September 22 on the presidential election day," Vardanian said–noting that mass disturbances begin when the people lose their patience–but not on calls of a party.

"The authorities have discredited themselves and they must step down. The National Accord Alliance has no differences on this issue," Vardanian emphasized.

The rally was attended by more than 3,000 people.
