The governing Republican Party of Armenia’s victory in recent parliamentary elections means that the development of relations with the EU will remain a priority of Armenian foreign policy. This is evident in the progress in negotiations of an Association Agreement with the Union. However, the current ruling elite has not undertaken serious political reforms. This will slow Armenia’s further rapprochement with the EU. The priority of EU policy towards the government in Yerevan should be to support democratisation and the modernisation of the country. Another test for Armenian democracy will be the presidential election in 2013.
