Before thousands at Liberty Square Raffi K. Hovannisian declared a hunger strike until Serzh Sargsyan resigns and formally concedes the Armenian people's victory in the February 18 presidential election.

"If on April 9, the Archbishop puts Serzh Sargsyan's hand on the Bible and in the name and breath of God swears in a false president, he will do so over my dead body," Hovannisian said.
