Armenian president’s ‘letter’ to Heritage party leader as seen by MP.

Zaruhi Postanjyan, Secretary of the Heritage parliamentary group, issued a statement entitled “Incumbent President Serzh Sargsyan’s letter to newly elected president of Armenia Raffi Hovannisian.”

The statement reads, in particular:

“Dear Raffi,

Since February 18 I have been seeking right or wrong decision in politics and everyday life.

Socrates once said, ‘It is better to suffer wrong than to do wrong’

I have realized we suffered defeat when we let morals come into conflict with politics.

I am quite aware of having made a mistake by laying a serious political claim without respecting the principle of harmony.

I am watching the developments in Freedom Square every day and see your suffering wrong.

I can see morals gaining victory over a well thought-out policy.

Dear Raffi, I admit your victory, our common victory.

I accept the spirit and agenda of Freedom Square.

I am ready to participate in the inauguration of New Armenia’s 4th president Raffi Hovannisian in Freedom Square, on April 9. After the ceremony I will request him to pardon me and all of us.”
