Is the Authoritarian Party Truce in Nagorno-Karabakh Doomed?

Deutsche Fassung


In May 2015, Nagorno-Karabakh has elected a new parliament. However, many experts have not taken the election seriously. Discussions in parliament are widely considered meaningless. The ongoing conflict with Azerbaijan justified an authoritarian party truce which lasted for years. Recently, the internal agreement has begun to crumble. With the Party of National Revival, a real opposition has entered parliament.
