President Armen Sarkissian has issued a message. According to the Communications Department of the Office of the President of Armenia, the president’s message states:
The fact that the democratic processes in the Republic of Armenia are irreversible should not cause hesitation in anyone, whether in Armenia or outside its borders.
According to the Constitution of the Republic of Armenia, power belongs to the people. Hence, the legislative, executive and judicial branches of power in the Republic of Armenia must express the collective will of the people of Armenia and serve their Constitutional objectives.
Therefore, I would like to call on the citizens of Armenia, irrespective of their social and political bearing and position to keep calm and quiet, to observe the Constitution and the laws.
At the moment being abroad for a working visit, I am in contact with the relevant government agencies.
I call for dominance of common sense and tolerance on these days. God save us.”
