“The internal political situation in Armenia is explosive, the situation threatens to turn almost into a civil war. There is a pronounced antagonism between supporters of acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and ex-President Robert Kocharyan. It is scary to imagine what will happen if this enmity isn’t stopped. Both parties decide the issue of life and death,” he said.
Ter-Petrosyan expressed confidence that the parliamentary system of government for Armenia means death, and it is imperative to return to the presidential form. He called the transition to a parliamentary system the biggest mistake of the third president, Serzh Sargsyan.
The first president of Armenia compared the current situation with the beginning of the 90s. He noted that the state apparatus was fragmented now and then, and the management was at zero, there were no police, local self-government bodies, the courts didn’t work.
Ter-Petrosyan added that very sad days await Armenia.
