PanARMENIAN.Net - Prosperous Armenia leader Gagik Tsarukyan will
have more chances for victory at the upcoming presidential race than
the ex-president Robert Kocharian, head of Sociometer sociological
center said.

As Aharon Adibekyan told a press conference, 60% of the votes
Prosperous Armenia garnered during the parliamentary elections were
cast by the authorities, with only 40% cast by the opposition members.

The expert voiced skepticism over the party's ability to enlist only
opposition's support, with Armenian National Congress (ANC), Heritage
and ARF Dashnaktsutyun (ARFD) being the main actors.

Mr. Adibekyan further expressed doubts over the opposition leaders
to nominate a single candidate at the presidential race.
