“My political activity was not during his lifetime; we joined the party after his death and know about him via his speeches, activities and biography," - Armen Ashotyan said.

To the question whether Ashot Navasardyan wanted to see just such a party, Ashotyan replied: “I am sure he could both assess and criticize our job. Nevertheless, he would be proud of the fact that the first political party in Armenia today is the number one player in political life and, unfortunately, the only one among the creators of political content,” - concluded Armen Ashotyan.

Ashot Navasardyan was a member of an underground United National Party. Later, he followed Garegin Nzhdeh's "Tseghakron" ideology, criticized the Soviet totalitarian system, defended the Armenian Cause.
