RA National Assembly deputy, Coordinator of Board of Trustees of Youth Foundation Karen Avagyan's speech during the NA session.
"In the political processes the most interesting phenomenon is to become, dull, boring and predictable. In past years, there were demonstrations, rallies all the time and there was a moment that they had already converted in daily routine with the same texts, wit the same rhetorical speeches and requirements. Armenian nation is so accustomed to such kind of things that the people can not be surprised with the similar actions any longer.
In fact the only way to surprise the public is the concrete and precise political message. It is fact that the lack of programs and agenda decays the political organism which we observe now in the oppositional pole.
So, in this case, it is completely understandable Raffi Hovhannisyan's hunger strike: since he can no longer govern the process the start of which he himself has put. His hunger strike is somehow an action of desperation which is applied as a rule in the most difficult situations.
At this moment Raffi Hovannisian is at this very difficult stage. And the end of the hunger strike should be resolved in the team, a team, where everyone comes as a separate leader.
Serzh Sargsyan's yesterday's Press Conference gave answers to many questions concerning the society, at the same time it was a manifestation of political honesty and sincerity. It is known that only the strong can be honest and sincere.
Who, who, at least you, Mr. Hovhannisyan, you should know, that it is not acceptable to think some thing, to announce another thing during the rallies, to debate on the third thing, to tell the forth to your team members. Sincerity and honesty are great values.
Taking the opportunity, I join to all the warnings and I urge and call on Raffi Hovannisian to stop the hunger strike".
