Armenia at a cross roads

Armenian political party New Times will not participate in the forthcoming parliamentary elections, according to party chair, Aram Karapetyan, because the party does not believe that it is possible to change Armenia through elections.

Karapetyan says there is only one way to change anything in the country, and that is through street protests.

In contrast, Republican Party MP Manvel Badeyan believes that it is unacceptable to lead the country into revolution. He said "responsible" Armenians should not follow in the footsteps of their Arab peers.
