YEREVAN (Armenpress)–Arthur Aghabekian, a senior member of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation said on Friday the party deserves to have its own presidential candidate and will do everything possible to give a new political quality to the forthcoming presidential election in 2008..
“An ARF president will be able to resist the growing external challenges. There is no longer the South Caucasus. It has been replaced by the Black Sea and the Caspian regions in which every country will have to find their niche,” he argued, adding that the ARF will prove by its image that the opposition can be positive.
“But irrespective of who is elected president, if he is elected by the people and if the political groups contesting the election accept the election result, our party will help the new president of the country to build up the efficiency of Armenias army,” he said.
