LAS VEGAS, Nev. — On Tuesday, Danny Tarkanian released the following statement in response to the election of Nikol Pashinyan:
“My family and I send our congratulations to Nikol Pashinyan and the people of Armenia. Mr. Pashinyan’s peaceful protest for a freer Armenia awakened a larger movement against cronyism, corruption and the ruling elite. We are inspired by such courage in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.
I pray that Prime Minister Pashinyan is successful in bringing great change to Armenia. The future is brighter and filled with hope.”
