Three years after the Velvet Revolution, snap parliamentary elections will take place in Armenia on 20 June. ALDE Party member Bright Armenia proposed conducting these early elections, which continueto be considered the only feasible way to overcome the internal crisis the country is facing. Party leader and MP Edmon Marukyan will lead the national list.
Ahead of these elections, Bright Armenia held a party congress on 23 May, during which the party’s structural bodies were re-established and re-elected. Board members of the party reaffirmed the decision to take part in the upcoming elections under the slogan ‘There is an alternative, vote!’, which is based on three pillars:
- Future is the reflection of the past: creating consensus between the old and new generations is crucial.
- To construct a pluralistic and democratic society, we have time only for civic and a political consolidation aimed at brightening our future.
- In a state of crisis, there is always an opportunity for change.
According to Bright Armenia, these elections have the potential to become a turning point when it comes to fostering national solidarity, developing targeted and up-to-date public policy and establishing and inclusive strategy for foreign affairs.
