Based on oppositional rally results, the Armenian National Congress
(ANC) adopted a statement demanding for resignation of the Prime
Minister, Deputy Prime Minister, the Police Chief and other
high-ranking officials of Armenia.

Among other demands are: creation of an international committee on
March 1-2, 2008 events, compensation for families of the victims of
the events indicated, removal of a ban on rallies at Victory Square,
solution of a number of social issues.

The opposition also demands normalization of Karabakh talks and NKR
involvement in negotiation process. ANC urges the international
community, specifically, the U.S. to stop supporting the "ruling
regime" of Armenia. According to the statement, ANC will negotiate the
possibility of the extraordinary elections within the next few months.

"It's not a simple political statement, it's a program for a national
struggle," ANC leader Levon Ter-Petrossian stressed, announcing March
17 as the date of the next rally.
