Hayk Khanumyan, an oppositional deputy of the National Assembly of the Republic of Artsakh, head of the “Renaissance” faction, said that at the session of the executive body of their party the decision to elect the president of the transition period was left to his discretion.
“In any case, I will vote against Bako Sahakyan, and one of the ways of voting against him is voting for Eduard Aghabekyan. I will speak in more detail on my July 19 speech”, says the NA deputy.
He notes that he is positive about Eduard Aghabekyan’s candidacy, but the latter has no chance to win. “He also realizes that. He was nominated by the powers that are not majority in the National Assembly. Anyway, he will send certain messages to the public and we will follow and evaluate the messages that Eduard Aghabekyan will direct to the people”.
Let us remind that the election of the president of the transition period of the Artsakh Republic will take place on July 19. There are two candidates nominated by factions: current president Bako Sahakyan, and head of “Movement-88” faction Eduard Aghabekyan.
