Armenia – Problems within ruling coalition

I am pressed for time today, so I am just going to post a link to an article published by RFE/RL on Armenia. It is a really interesting, informative article about the problems with the governing coalition there.

Armenia is one of those ‘problem’ democracies. There is a very strong president and elections seem to favour the main HHK party. However, the government is a real coalition and there is an active opposition.

This article seems to suggest that the ruling regime may be about to fracture. Presumably, how the president and the HHK party respond to the situation will be the true test of whether or not Armenia can really be considered a democracy.
