PanARMENIAN.Net - The second number of Prosperous Armenia's
electoral list Vartan Oskanian commented on party's activity in
future parliament.

"Prosperous Armenia will remain an alternative to the political
majority in the parliament," he said during distribution of
parliamentary mandates.

"We will try to introduce tangible changes in Armenian society,"
he said, noting the party's readiness to vote for the bills serving
public interests.

Mr. Oskanian said the party expects no consequences for its refusal
to join the coalition.

Prosperous Armenia issued a statement, which said the party doesn't
consider involvement in coalition government formation a reasonable

"We maintained a common position throughout the whole election
campaign. I have repeatedly stated that I pursue no personal goals
other than political. Moreover, I reiterate readiness to suffer a
loss to retain public trust," Gagik Tsarukyan stated.

According to polling results, Prosperous Armenia garnered about half
a million votes. These people voted for our party, out of faith in
us and the demand for tangible changes in the country's social and
economic life. Given the election outcomes, Prosperous Armenia has
no constitutional possibility to participate in government formation
and implement its programs. Thus, I declare that our party doesn't
deem participation in coalition formation reasonable," the statement
by party leader read.
