Armenian parliament leader visits former presidential candidate on hunger strike.

Late Friday night, Armenia’s National Assembly (NA) Speaker Hovik Abrahamyan paid a visit to opposition Heritage Party leader, former FM Raffi Hovannisian—who is declared runner-up to the winner, incumbent President Serzh Sargsyan, as a result of the presidential election that was conducted on February 18, but who claims to be the real winner in the vote and who declared a hunger strike on March 10 at capital city Yerevan’s Liberty Square.

They talked for several minutes under Hovannisian’s tent and, subsequently, Abrahamyan responded to the questions posed by news reporters.
