YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 29, NOYAN TAPAN. Former RA President Robert
Kocharian, on September 29, refuted the rumors on his returning to
politics. During the ceremony of putting into operation Saralanj
highway in Yerevan he stated to journalists that it is "the main
subject of gossips." According to him, he has not got bored yet of
the freedom he has at last received. "I will also confess that it
is the second time within 6 months that I wear a tie: first I wore a
tie on May 28, during the event dedicated to Sardarapat heroic fight,
I do not wish to have a dresscode yet, when I have such willingness,
such striving, without fail you will first hear it from me and not
from rumors," the second RA President said.

Commenting upon the assertion that "in order to correct the home
political situation we should get rid of Kocharian's heritage," the
former RA President said: "It is impossible to get rid of my heritage,
as it is first of all the fully-established Republic of Armenia, it is
the developed Yereven, the restored Gyumri, Northern Avenue, the road
we are standing on, the civil service system, which mostly skilfully
carries out its duties. "I do not know how to get rid of all this,
in order to get rid one should destroy all this," R. Kocharian said.
