The rally led by Heritage party leader Raffi Hovannisian has kicked off in Freedom square - the main venue where Hovannisian has been holding post-election demonstrations following the February 18 vote.
Opening the meeting, Heritage Vice-chair Armen Martirosyan said ‘Raffi Hovannisian had shouldered the final stage of the struggle -the hunger strike.'
Martirosyan said that though many citizens express their concerns over Hovannisian's health conditions, his stamina has not reduced throughout the hunger strike.
"Our struggle will be crowned with victory," Mr Martirosyan announced adding that a collection of signatures ‘in support of struggle for a new Armenia' had launched in the square. "The sun is an import part in our BAREVolution," he stressed.
Heritage MP Zaruhi Postanjyan started her speech by greeting the rally participants.
Speaking about the Constitutional Court's ruling to reject the appeals of presidential candidates Raffi Hovannisian and Andrias Ghukasian, who were disputing the results of the February vote, Mrs Postanjyan said, "Judges had made a deal with the Devil and sold their conscience to him. Maybe that Devil is Serzh Sargsyan?"
The moment the Heritage representative gave the name of the CC President [Gagik Harutyunyan], the crowd began screaming and whistling.
Raffi Hovannisian went on hunger strike on March 10 saying he would continue it till April 9, the day of Serzh Sargsyan's inauguration.
The Constitutional Court rejected on Thursday the appeals of Raffi Hovannisian and Andrias Ghukasyan to invalidate the official results of the February 18 election that gave victory to Serzh Sargsyan. The court said that both candidates had failed to substantiate their allegations of widespread fraud.
