YEREVAN, JULY 2, ARMENPRESS: The talks about having one opposition
candidate during the next presidential elections in Armenia are
unrealistic. Armenpress reports that such opinion expressed Deputy
of Armenian National Assembly, member of NAC parliamentary group Aram
Manukyan during the press conference on July 2.

In his words at first it is early to speak about it as well as it seems
unrealistic that there will be one candidate who will be accepted by
everyone. "Of course it is desirable version as the sate of opposition
and nation will facilitate but it is early to speak about it now as
it is not the time for nominations and it is not excluded that there
will be changes" said Aram Manukyan.

The speaker stressed that ANC will nominate Levon Ter-Petrosyan in
any case as they know who the leader is. "I think that we will hold
discussions on this issue and make decision in the second half of
September" he said. Reverberating to PAP-ANC possible cooperation
Manukyan mentioned that discussion on that issue have not take place.
