Aram Karaetyan, Leader of the New Times Party (NZhK) says the ‘new revolution will be led by people who did not participate in the May 6 parliamentary elections.'
"The situation is not ‘explosive' in Armenia yet. Revolutions are not conducted solely to solve social problems, they are riots," he said.
Aram Karapetyan does not pin hopes on the Armenian National Congress (HAK) or other opposition forces that did not take his advice and participated in the parliamentary elections.
"Now they [opposition forces] have a total of 20 seats [out of 131 seats] and cannot change anything," said the NZhK leader.
"The only thing that the opposition can do in the National Assembly is to create scandals. The Prosperous Armenia Party (BHK) cannot help the opposition either. How can an oligarch be an oppositionist?" he said.
Besides, as Mr. Karapetyan says, the BHK is mainly comprised of economic figures and the party does not have a specific political platform.
