Social Democratic Hunchakian Party Central Committee member Vahan Shirkhanyan answering questions of the press today stated that there is indeed a continued political crisis in Armenia today.

“The political crisis in Egypt and those in certain the Arab countries reflect the internal acute economic and political situations which Armenia is also facing.” stated Mr. Shirkhanyan. “A political crisis may be an element of the political environment, lack of party ideological, the low quality and workmanship of the political elite, so yes; we can say that elements of the political crisis are there.”

“Migration out of the country continues, meaning that every day citizens are dissatisfied with the current situation: It is the social and economic nature that dissatisfies those who migrate, thus Armenia faces a problem that is socio-economic. Having to overcome poverty and the lack of social justice, it is natural and important that people protest and convey their dissatisfaction of the socio-economic and political situation of the country” added Mr. Shirkhanyan.
