Out of the 63 deputies of the Republican Party of Armenia (HHK) faction
in the previous National Assembly, only 23 approached the podium to
speak. They were simply deputies that pressed buttons. There is no such
thing as the faction of the Republican Party of Armenia," Aram Manukyan
declared in his speech during the rally at Freedom Square today.

He assured that all issues facing Armenia are solved by the person
located at Baghramyan 26 Street. Manukyan promised the gathered that
the Armenian National Congress (HAK) would stay true to the course
that it has taken.

After his speech, actor Yervand Manaryan rose to the podium and
declared: "We are the owners of our country. We are the ones keeping
our country."

He didn't hide the fact that he was as emotional as he was during
the first speech that he had made at the HAK rally. Manaryan said
he was emotional due to the incident that took place at Harsnakar
Restaurant Complex on June 17, as a result of which military doctors
of the Ministry of Defense were beaten and transferred to the hospital
in extremely critical condition.

"We stand for our officer. After this incident, the incumbent president
must resign and there must be new presidential elections.

Even if there is little time left before the end of his term, he has
to resign. I am certain that each of us thinks like that." Yervand
Manaryan ended his speech by asking the gathered at Freedom Square
the following: "Let's ask the Lord to save the life of the doctor
in an unconscious state with 5 seconds of silence", and the people
fulfilled his request.
