The Chairman of National Democratic Union party Vazgen Manukyan considers it unacceptable to speak of the two peaks at the upcoming Presidential elections in Armenia.
According to him, it would only be possible to speak of the two main peaks, if one part of the voters would have intention to vote for Prime-minister Serge Sargsyan, the other part for the Former President Levon Ter-Petrossian. Reality is much different however. “According to data of sociological research, there is a big gap between these two candidates. This is why it is pointless to speak of the two peaks in the electorate’s moods.”
As Vazgen Manukyan has very rightly noted further, you could speak of two peaks/poles, if there was any substantial ideological difference between Serge Sargsyan and Levon Ter-Petrossian, however, that difference isn’t there, according to the NDU leader.
Interesting thoughts, although quite debatable. This however, led me to a question – how many peaks, or poles are there at the upcoming presidential elections in Armenia anyway? And who do you trust in the end? Let me remind once again, that according to the PP Chairman Tigran Karapetyan, he is the alternative pole, not Artur Baghdasaryan or Levon Ter-Petrossian. Perhaps we looking at a bunch of Napoleons here, without a single outstanding pole? :)))
