The citizens of Armenia proved on February 18 that their patience has limits, that they deserve a better life and authorities and it is impossible to kill the aspiration for justice and freedom in people, the Supreme Body of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (Dashnaktsutyun) said in a statement released earlier today.
"The outburst of the people was the response to the current state of affairs in the country, to the political, economic and moral atmosphere. It was the response to the authorities' complacent behavior that they enjoy the support of the absolute majority of the society. It became apparent that the majority of the Armenians do not accept the ruling regime.
This time, the coordinated violations during the vote counting were added to the resources applied by authorities in the May 2012 parliamentary election. The tabulation of election results came to prove our conviction that elections are predetermined and the assessment of international observers is predictable.
The post-election situation in the country with all its possible developments imposes great responsibility and necessity for important decisions on the part of the acting authorities, the main contender of the re-elected president, opposition forces and active part of the society.
Dashnaktsutyun stands by people and supports the idea of finding joint solutions. We must realize the seriousness of the moment, and search for ways out of the situation. This is difficult but unavoidable work that we must do together: we must make ourselves worthy of the respect of our people. Only in this way and with a clearly defined political agenda we can be able to ensure the country's sustainable development and ensure safe and dignified future for our citizens, the party said in the statement.
