ArmInfo. "I rule out the possibility that we support Prime Minister
Serzh Sargsyan in the presidential election whatever the distribution
of political forces is", Leader of National Democratic Union Vazgen
Manukyan told ArmInfo correspondent.

According to him, supporting Serzh Sargsyan's candidature would mean
supporting the policy pursued in the country, but for the NDU the
necessity to make serious changes in the country is very important.

"Actually, the oppositional candidate I wouldn't like to connect
the country's future with may theoretically get an opportunity to
take part in the second round. Let us not specify whom I mean. But
this is only a theoretical possibility, however, I feel no similar
tendency. In any case, we can just step aside, but we won't support
a candidate from power", he stressed.
