The Armenian National Congress (ANC) and the Prosperous Armenia party obviously have serious tactical disagreements, political scientist Vigen Hakobyan told Tert.am.
Recriminations or messages in the form of statements instead of negotiations means the two parties negotiated their tactics, which did not produce any results.
“I have the impression that the statement by the Political Council of the Prosperous Armenia party was a surprise for the ANC, and it has to provide explanations. Serious tactical disagreements are obvious, which step from their strategic differences,” Mr Hakobyan said.
If the two parties fail to settle their tactical differences in the near future, it may create serious problems.
“The major problem that the Prosperous Armenia party is much more closely connected with the authorities that the opposition forces – both politically, economically and personally. This is the reason for the fundamental disagreement,” he said.
Expert in election technologies Armen Badalyan does not think there is any split.
“The trio is not an alliance. The forces forming it do not have any legal commitments to each other. The trio is a de facto, but not de jure alliance. They did not sign any document on their common position on any foreign political issue or any other issue. An each of them can express its opinion until such a document has been signed,” Mr Badalyan said.
