Lusine Haroyan, who leads the National Progress Party list, has cast her vote “for the sake of new Armenia.”
After casting her vote at polling station 9/36, she said they will continue struggling as a non-parliamentary force, even if they fail to collect enough votes.
“We have far-reaching programs for the future. We are not going to concede our Motherland to anyone,” Haroyan told reporters.
“I hope we will finally have a political Parliament, an ideological Parliament, where people will really think about the country and will use their professional skills for the sake of the party’s progress,” she stated.
Armenians are voting in an early parliamentary election on Sunday. Nine political parties and two alliances are running for the National Assembly. These include the Republican Party of Armenia, Citizen’s Decision Party, Armenian Revolutionary Federation Dashnaktsutyun, My Step bloc, Bright Armenia Party, Christian Democratic Revival Party, National Progress Party, Menk bloc, Orinats Yerkir Party, Sasna Tsrer Party and Prosperous Armenia Party.
