"Bright Armenia" party will be actively involved in the upcoming local elections planned on September 18 and October 2, and it nominated a total of 53 candidates to ensure the competitiveness in small and large communities.
"Bright Armenia" party Chairman Edmon Marukyan said this today at Media Center.
"We give much importance to local elections. The famous saying says that democracy begins in places. There were approaches that we should go from top and start changing from the top to down. We think that the chances of changing from down to top are more democratic, more real and more capable to ensure civil society involvement rather than top-down amendments, which I consider not so much democratic. Where we have head of community candidates, they were not nominated just to participate in the elections, they have a serious chance of winning, and we struggle to take power in these communities," Maroukyan said.
