Answering the questions of the journalists, the NA Prime Minister Andranik Margaryan noted that Larissa Alaverdyan's candidacy is excluded, but there can be other candidates for the post of the Ombudsman.

According to the Prime Minister, he is for Armen Haroutyunyan not because he is the President's representative but because "I have known him for a long time and he is a good specialist". As for the opinion that Serge Sargsyan has a finger in it, then... "Are you going to connect me with whatever happens in this world?" the Defense Minister noted. In answer to "A1+" question if it is possible that Serge Sargsyan will become the nest Ombudsman, Mr. Sargsyan laughed.

As for why the elections failed today and if the reason was the disorganized coalition, the Prime Minister answered that 10 people did not participate in the elections, and this was were decisive. According to the Prime Minister there is nothing to worry about as the poll was closed.

As for the opposition candidate, the opinions are different. National Unity wants to insist on the candidacy of Ruben Torosyan, but according to our information the latter refuses. The Justice bloc will probably offer a new candidacy. They will make a decision tomorrow before the start of the NA session.
