We all are facing a dilemma. New Armenia is just a proposal, and
is one of the demands of the people, Heritage party leader, former
presidential candidate Raffi Hovannisian told reporters on Monday.

He called unfair the criticism voiced by some politicians, civil
activists and political analysts who say that the Raffi Hovannisian-led
movement instead of power change and radical steps chose a different
way after April 9.

"I was not ready to send hundreds of condolence telegrams after April
9 or to become the successor of someone's ideology or thoughts. We are
in a unique Armenia, in a situation when nothing can be changed in
one day, but I am convinced that the changes will come eventually,"
Raffi Hovannisian said, adding that the tough demographic situation
and emigration will continue unless changes are made.
