YEREVAN. – ARF Dashnaktsutyun has not nominated candidate in #38 election district of Syunik Region, but would discuss its position on the candidate and will issue a statement.
The party is inclined to urging voters not to support the ruling party’s candidates, representative of ARF local branch told Armenian News-NEWS.am.
“We are against the elections, as there will be the same violations. We will call on our voters to boycott elections. Nothing will change. This is what we also told the Heritage party’s candidate,” Armenak Stepantyan said.
ARF does not rule out supporting the opposition candidates, for example Samvel Hayrapetyan nominated by Heritage party.
The MP seat from Election District #38 remained vacant when Vahe Hakobyan, who was elected into the parliament from this district, was appointed Syunik Governor on July 11. The early parliamentary elections will be conducted on September 29.
