"I advocate publishing in the mass media the list of property and
revenues of persons that have ever occupied state positions, starting
from the president and ending with judges and parliamentarians. I
also mean myself and my family", said the first president of Armenia,
leader of the Armenian National Congress Levon Ter-Petrosyan at
today's rally in Yerevan.

"Today we unanimously make a statement containing 15 requirements of
the protesting forces to the authorities", he said. In particular,
the protesters demand releasing all the political prisoners before
March 15; restore the activity of the fact-finding group; paying
compensations to all families of those who were killed and suffered
from March 1 developments. "We demand stopping the police terror,
return air to A1+ TV channel, as well as amending or canceling many
laws, particularly, the law on motor third party liability and the
ban on street trade. We demand raising the minimal salary to 200 USD,
the unemployment doles to 100 USD, the average pension to 110 USD. We
are convinced that the funds pocketed by the officials and the taxes
not paid by the oligarchs must be enough to cover all these expenses",
said Ter-Petrosyan.

On behalf of the opposition Ter-Petrosyan demanded resignation of Prime
Minister Tigran Sargsyan, Vice Premier Armen Gevorgyan, President of
the Central Bank Artur Javadyan, Chairman of the State Income Committee
Gagik Khachatyan, Mayor of Yerevan Karen Karapetyan, Prosecutor General
Aghvan Hovsepyan, Director of the National Security Service Hayk
Harutyunyan. "If most of our claims are satisfied, the demonstrators
will authorize the ANC to start dialogue with the regime on mid-term
presidential and parliamentary elections," Ter-Petrosyan said.
