Gagik Tsarukyan, who leads the list of Prosperous Armenia Party, says he has voted for the sake of “people’s well-being.”
Asked why he seeks election to the National Assembly, Tsarukyan said “a wealthy man wants to fully utilize his potential for the sake of the development and strengthening of the country and the well-being of people.”
Gagik Tsarukyan added that “instead of throwing mud at each other, it’s necessary to unite and work together to ensure a more prosperous life for people and contribute to the development of the country.”
