PanARMENIAN.Net - Member of Parliament from Heritage oppositional
party Zaruhi Postanjyan does not agree with critics to her person
followed by her question to Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan in the
Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).

"It is absolutely incorrect to conduct comparison with authoritarian
regime in Azerbaijan, or between authoritarian regimes of other
countries. We have problem with becoming a democratic state,"
Postanjyan told a press conference in Yerevan.

"Presence of an oppositional member in Parliamentary delegation of
PACE does not rule out that the country is not authoritarian," said
the Member of Parliament expressing her disagreement with Mr.

Sargsyan's illegal holding of the Armenian President's office.

Postanjyan said that from 1995 all elections held in Armenia are
not legal.

Postanjyan also disagreed with the opinion that she involves external
forces to the Armenian interior and underlined that Armenia is a
full member of PACE, and this organization is called up to protect
Armenian citizens' rights.

During President Serzh Sargsyan's speech at PACE on June 22, Zaruhi
Postanjyan offered him to hold a quick election, saying that now
Armenia is an authoritarian state. In his turn, the President replied
that no elections will be held in Armenia noting that he respects
the opinion of the Parliament Member, but does not think European
partners of Armenia share this view.
