Aram Karapetyan, Leader of the New Times Party (NZhK) predicts cabinet reshuffle ahead of the 2013 presidential elections in Armenia.
"Everything in Armenia is done in advance to show others that something has happened in the country," said the NZhK leader who predicts changes in the government by the year-end.
Serzh Sargsyan's recent consultation in the executive body testifies to Aram Karapetyan's belief.
"The show was a good one but it was badly staged," he said.
The NZhK leader excludes the possible cooperation between Armenia's first and second presidents, ‘at least on an official level.'
Asked whether [Armenia's second president] Robert Kocharian will run for president during the 2003 elections, Mr Karapetyan said, "He will if the outer forces demand it. But so far, there is no demand."
The NZhK leader confirmed his intention to participate in the 2013 presidential race though he predicts difficulties on his way connected with his registration as presidential contender.
