The Zhoghovurd Newspaper reported that on weekend the ex-president Robert Kocharyan and PA leader Gagik Tsarukyan met and telephoned each other. Kocharyan is rumored to have advised Tsarukyan not to hurry, take his time, play well not to lose his face.
The newspaper informs that Tsarukyan told his in-law Hovik Abrahamyan about his conversation. The latter advised Tsarukyan that he has started a wrong and dangerous game and he had better form a coalition and finish with it. This is the reason why no final decision is in place yet.
Hovik Abrahamyan needs to hurry, of course. The point is that if PA does not form a coalition, Hovik Abrahamyan will hardly hope for a high post, and it is equal to destruction. Besides, his fellow Republicans may blame him not only for the failure in the election but also failure to persuade Tsarukyan.
If PA forms a coalition, Hovik Abrahamyan will hope for a high post. However, the ex-speaker does not have a chance either.
