HRAPARAK: TENSE ATMOSPHERE WITHIN HAK FACTION

Saturday,
August

The current National Assembly of Armenia is notable for constant
conflicts and boycotts within its parliamentary factions. The
atmosphere is especially tense in Armenian National Congress (HAK)
faction. Faction deputies Nikol Pashinian and Hrant Bagratian did
not attend HAK sitting yesterday. Yet the sitting took place and
even issued a statement condemning recent acts of violence against
activists. Chairwoman of Social Democrat Hunchak Party Lyudmila
Sargsyan told 'Hraparak' daily: "As far as I know, they are out of
town. The rest of the faction members attended the sitting".

As is known, the abovementioned two men have almost severed ties with
HAK faction led by Levon Zurabian in recent months, even though both
Bagratian and Pashinian are among the most active deputies of the
National Assembly - they have made numerous speeches and authored many
bills, the daily says. "I have no information about any disagreement
or a new situation. Everything is the same," L. Sargsyan said.
