Of course, the Prosperous Armenia party has played a very tangible role in the political life of Armenia for many years.

“Dear Mr. Prime Minister, after the elections, as I thanked the people, the voters, I also said that not everything depends on the mandate, if there is no mandate, it doesn’t mean that we are not with the people. We stand by the people, we have discussed and informed about our vision, our approach on how to overcome this situation. Regardless of not being represented in the Parliament, we stand by our people”, he said.
