OREANDA-NEWS. Armenian President Armen Sarkissian delivered a message in which he called on the government and the National Assembly to prepare for early parliamentary election, Sputnik Armenia reported.

“Artsakh [Nagorno-Karabakh. – Ed.] is wounded. We have a raging society. The wounded economy is overwhelmed by colossal social problems. As a result of the huge flow of people from Artsakh, a humanitarian catastrophe is taking place. We cannot ignore reality and continue to live an ordinary life,” Sargsyan said.

The politician noted that in recent days he held several meetings with parliamentary and non-parliamentary forces, public groups and representatives of the diaspora. The absolute majority, he said, agree on one thing – the resignation of the government and early parliamentary election are necessary.

“The government should objectively assess its potential and present in a short time a roadmap for a number of constitutional processes, which will result in the possibility of holding early parliamentary election. Before that, power in the country should be transferred to the highly qualified government of national accord,” the President of Armenia emphasized.
