ArmInfo. Everyone in Armenia, including oligarchs and simple workers,
realizes that the country can no longer continue the present
path and connects hopes with the presidential election, Leader of
the National-Democratic Union (NDU) Vazgen Manukyan told ArmInfo
correspondent.

He added that this gives an additional impetus to the political life.

According to him, there are hundreds and thousands of people in the
power structure which realized that nobody is guaranteed against
the strokes of the system's hammer, including oligarchs. "The story
that happened to Khachatur Sukiasyan is a spectacular example. So,
everyone has a desire to change the situation", V.Manukyan specified.

Speaking about the position of the country's leaders, the politician
said that in any state the president cannot completely understand
the reality as it always seems to him/her that he/she is the only
person who can save the country and lead it ahead. "The opinions
of personalities are not so important. It is much more important
what people around him/her feel. But they also have something to
lose, therefore they can agree to changes only when they feel:
that the authority faces a force capable to win and this victory
may result in creation of normal conditions rather than in property
redistribution. Probably, it will be more difficult for some people to
make a profit in normal conditions, but there will be much confidence
in the future", Vazgen Manukyan thinks.
