HistoryEdit

The party was founded in 1999 by Armenians from the Javakheti region of Georgia.[1]

The party participated in the 1999 Armenian parliamentary election, winning just 2.30% of the popular vote.

Following the 2003 Armenian parliamentary election, the party won 3.3% of the popular vote but failed to win any seats in the National Assembly.

One party member decided to run in the 2007 Armenian parliamentary election as part of the Republican Party of Armenia's candidate list, winning a single seat. There has been no recent participation of the party in any parliamentary elections since 2007.[2]

In 2008, the party endorsed Serzh Sargsyan from the Republican Party of Armenia. In 2013, the party did not publicly endorse any candidate.[3]

IdeologyEdit

The party supports fostering stronger ties between Armenia and the Armenian Diaspora as well as strengthening the economic development of the country.[4]
