Aram Sargsyan, Leader of the "Republic" (Hanrapetutyun) Party has issued a statement, re-confirming his intention to reject his parliamentary mandate.
"I wish the Armenian National Congress (HAK) success in its parliamentary activity. My party is going to discuss the possible format of cooperation with the opposition bloc [HAK] in the near future," said Sargsyan, who did not exclude their withdrawal from the HAK.
"We have had some disagreement with the HAK over a number of interior political developments and foreign political issues. I have publicly voiced my opinion on these issues. I have always done my utmost for the common good, subordinating my personal interests to the good of the team and its objectives. I am deeply convinced that we all deserve to live in a completely different Armenia," the leader of the Republic Party said promising to detail his future steps during the party's upcoming sitting.
