The three opposition parties that issued a statement in Yerevan on 7 September demanding the impeachment of President Robert Kocharian, on 10 September decided to postpone beginning the collection of deputies' signatures in support of that demand. Hanrapetutiun leader and former Prime Minister Aram Sargsian said his party, together with the People's Party of Armenia and the National Accord Front, is still working on the text of the draft demand listing alleged violations of the constitution by Kocharian. Those alleged violations include the sacking in May 2000 of Defense Minister Vaghashak Harutiunian.
