Yerevan, 20 January: The Ramkavar-Azatakan Party of Armenia (RAPA) has issued a statement criticizing the country's coalition government and accusing it of attempting to artificially inflate prices for essential goods.

The leader of the party, Arutyun Arakelyan, said in Yerevan today that the government had failed to live up to its promises to improve the social situation in the country. Moreover, he said "there are reasons to believe that considerable economic growth is a product of the government's imagination because the conditions of ordinary citizens over the past year have even worsened".
