Press Review


“Azg” says Armenian opposition parties can no longer win many votes just by attacking the government. “The people need concrete programs and concrete mechanisms for implementing them,” says the paper. “And this is the main reason why the election campaign … is dominated by those parties that propose concrete programs, come up with concrete and realistic mechanisms for implementing them, and are steering clear of populism.”

“168 Zham” sees an enormous contrast between the election campaigns in France and Armenia. The paper says the French presidential race is characterized by an “extremely serious political struggle,” unlike the election campaign in Armenia which it calls a “show.”

“Hayots Ashkhar” echoes these complaints, saying that few of the parties running for parliament have presented Armenians with political programs and ideas. What they have come up instead, says the paper, is “easy-to-digest heart-winning advertisements.”

“Hayk” says the price of potatoes in Armenia went up sharply with the start of the election campaign, dismissing government claims that this is the result of colder-than-usual weather. “Gagik Tsarukian has bought and distributed so much potatoes that we have run out of our stocks,” the paper quotes an unnamed potato farmer as saying. “Or they have pushed up the price to make [political] benevolence seem more costly.”
