NKR Defense Minister instructs army to vote for serving President
‘“It’s true that [presidential candidate] Vitali [Balasanyan] is our friend, but we must stand alongside Bako Sahakyan.’
He did not deny these statements, in an interview with Zhoghovurd, and only said: ‘I’m not obligated to respond to your questions. Whoever told you that, let him come, I’ll tell him,’” Zhoghovurd writes.
To note, according to preliminary information, the voter turnout was 73.38 percent in NKR’s presidential elections. And Vitali Balasanyan received more votes primarily in his place of birth, Askeran Region, and in Martuni Region.
