YEREVAN. – Ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) MP candidate in Yerevan’s Avan district Ruben Hayrapetyan believes that the election campaign passed calmly. He does not share the thought that the candidates of ruling party hampered the work of the opposition nominees.
“Some candidates need to be engaged in intrigues. The same Armenian National Congress (ANC) MP candidate in Yerevan’s Malatsia-Sebastia district Nikol Pashinyan would like to be beaten. However, we have a strict command to hold the best elections ever,” Hayrapetyan told Aravot daily.
According to him, another opposition MP candidate from Heritage party Stepan Safaryan claimed as if Hayrapetyan’s supporters hampered their work in Avan district of Yerevan.
