“He is unable to secure for the [ruling coalition’s senior partner, the Republican Party of Armenia] RPA the number of votes [for the upcoming parliamentary elections] he promised to the leadership. There are even rumors in the RPA that, after the elections, the ‘leadership’ will get rid of the Kotayk Regional Governor. And according to the news we received from the Region, the Governor is going door to door to secure votes.
Just as the RPA spoke harshly with the Governor, he speaks in the same tone with his subordinates. He put the matter harshly: if the village prefects are unable to secure the promised votes, ‘it will not be good [for them].’
They are even saying in the RPA that the Governor has prepared a list of the disobedient, which he opens every day and records pluses and minuses to the performance of each of them,” Yerkir writes.
