The ANC and Heritage which argued over the joint headquarters to monitor the election with their supporters involved in a row were actually left in the shadow of the Prosperous Armenia Party by entering the parliament.
This became clear after the statement of Gagik Tsarukyan not to form a coalition. In fact, the PA is the largest opposition parliamentary group, at least de jure. At the same time, the list of the PA had indicated before the election that PA wanted to enter the parliament in order to oppose to the RPA.
As PA is opposition, the Armenian National Congress and Heritage appear altogether in the shadow of the PA because even if they now join, they will hardly be able to aspire to the role of locomotive of opposition.
In other words, what the Congress and Heritage could not do by failing join for a strategic goal and thus resolving such issues will be done by the PA, forcing them to come together in the shadow of the PA. The point is that if they do not join, their scarce factions will appear in the margin.
In fact, not PA but the other opposition parties became a Rule of Law Party for both the arithmetic of their seats and their functional importance. The only difference is that they are the Rule of Law Party of the Prosperous Armenia Party, not RPA.HAKOB BADALYAN
