`There is exceptionally one rival for Raffi Hovhannisyan, the
candidate for President, Serzh Sargsyan. Though I wish good luck to
all the other candidates, I am sure that the struggle will develop
between these two candidates,' said vice-chairman of Heritage party
Arment Martirosyan to Panorama.am.

According to him Raffi Hovhannisyan has a clear plan which will be
presented to the public in the near future. From that plan it will
become clear that `we are coming to make cardinal reforms, to return
the citizens their rights, to evaluate the fatherland and the people
living there.'

`R. Hovhannisyan is out for struggle, he struggles for ideas he has
struggled for years, for living as the Armenians should live and for
the universal values,' he stressed.

Armen Martirosyan also mentioned that it is a totally different issue
what kind of struggle will occur between the candidates. It depends on
several factors, like how active will the society be or whether the
forces that have stated that will not participate in the upcoming
elections will activate the election processes.

`We shouldn't claim that there is no competitiveness there and that no
struggle will be. Let's not be pessimistic. We all should take part
and make the elections more active,' the vice-chairman of Heritage
party said and added that he expects elections will be hot as the
nominated candidates are not bad, are politically matured and have
something to say.
