PanARMENIAN.Net - Prosperous Armenia leader Gagik Tsarulyan's decision
on refusal to run for president is unlinked to Heritage party chairman
Raffi Hovannissian's plans, Heritage member said.

"Prosperous Armenia is a separate political force and is free to take
any decision," Armen Martirosyan said, deeming the party's refusal
to back any of the presidential candidates inexplicable.

"Prosperous Armenia has the second largest number of MPs in the
parliament. Their decision to boycott the elections is unfounded,"
he said.
