Presidential Candidate by the People

Raffi Hovhannisian recently revealed that he would run for president only if he is convinced that such a move is necessary for Armenia and the Armenian people. Speaking to Yerkir–he said: "The question of my candidacy and the form of my participation in the elections will be decided exclusively in the towns and villages of Armenia; the decision will emerge in public dialogues."

He–however–welcomes any consolidation. "It is not likely but possible the opposition crystallizes–and each of the 15 potential candidates withdraws to support one or two other candidates," Raffi Hovhannisian added.
