Asked how he is planning to do it, the second President of Armenia said: “Be a part of it, first of all by expressing opinion, second of all by active partnership with other political forces, using the entire toolbox which is usually used to participate in political processes. It may be both personal participation, it may be cooperation, it can simply be active stance in Armenia’s political arena, stance regarding issues of public conern and the general situation. Meaning there is a rather broad circle here.”
