“If civil groups want to succeed, they need to cooperate with political parties, says Armen Badalyan, an expert in election and political technologies.
He says all issues in Armenia are resolved in the political domain and does not understand all those who urge avoiding politicising this or that issue.
“They confuse politicisation with party-affiliation. No one forces them to become affiliated with any party but they need to cooperate with the political domain. Let us take as an example the law on the mandatory funded pension which was passed by the National Assembly after receiving the approval of political forces,” said Mr. Badalyan.
