Nomination of unknown presidential candidates is an attempt to put them to work in emergencies, says political scientist Levon Shirinyan.
"This is part of the technological process," he added.
Political analyst Manvel Sargsyan is more enthusiastic to see new candidates than the same figures.
"Every new person is more valuable," he said during a meeting with reporters.
Levon Shirinyan says by their decision to withdraw from the presidential race the Armenian National Congress (HAK), Armenian Revolutionary Federation-Dashnaktsutyun and Prosperous Armenia Party (BHK) appeared in a terrible plight. He believes that the BHK had an opportunity to boost the country but did not use it.
"And now we have a president who will obviously enjoy a brilliant victory in February's vote," he said.
In his turn, Manvel Sargsyan reminded that ‘people have been left alone in the struggle against the regime.'
Speaking about the presidential candidates Mr Shirinyan said Paruyr Hayrikyan (Union for National Self-Determination-AIM) Raffi Hovannisian (Heritage) and Hrant Bagratyan (HAK) have excellent chances to win.
