Armen Sargsyan, candidate for the President of Armenia nominated by the Republican Party, says he feels himself both as an Armenian and to some extent as a Diaspora-Armenian.
In an interview to Shant TV, askew whether the fact that he can be a presidential candidate is not a violation of the law, is there a legitimacy issue here, Armen Sargsyan said the question can be addressed in a different way: whether the Constitution or laws allow “someone like me to be candidate for the president”.
“It’s clearly written in the law who can be a candidate for the president of Armenia and how the 6 years are being calculated. The government and the respective services will answer your question. The question should be addressed to them in order to receive a respective response. For me it’s very clear: if the response is yes, and if I decide that I am ready to serve to Armenia in the post of the president, I will give my answer”, Armen Sargsyan said.
