Tigran Karapetyan Is The Alternative Candidate?

[Echannel | 2008-01-09]  Tigran Karapetyan is going to conduct his campaign based on several slogans: If you take electoral bribe, you become a hostage; If two sides struggle, the third one wins; One cannot live like this any more, etc. There are a lot of them, and, during the campaign, they are going to present Tigran Karapetyan, a presidential candidate from People’s Party, in the form of posters and videos.
“People’s Party has never distributed bribes,” Tigran Karapetyan has said today at a press conference. Hearing the objection that sometimes his charity events were being perceived as electoral bribe, he answered that he “did not expect votes” for them, and his desperation after the parliamentary elections that could be seen even on the air was resulted by the fact that his goals had not been fulfilled.
Karapetyan does not separate any of his candidates as main competitors but also notices that a lot of them are “located in the same field.” “For example, both Levon Ter-Petrossian and Arthur Baghdasaryan are based on the displeased segment of voters. I think there is nobody in the field I am in.” Karapetyan considers his nomination as an alternative candidacy, claiming he has been “nominated by the people.”
