The National Assembly (NA) elections, which were conducted in the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR; Artsakh) on May 3, were one step forward, as compared to the previous election, since they were held in a more competitive climate.
Gegham Baghdasaryan, President of the Stepanakert Press Club of the NKR capital city, noted the aforementioned at a press conference on Wednesday.
As per Baghdasaryan, “forming a government is a fairly long process, and it can’t be limited to solely a one-month election campaign.”
He also expressed the hope that, with time, democracy will put down roots in Artsakh, albeit the political forces do not yet enjoy equal opportunities.
The NKR National Assembly elections were held on May 3. Seven political parties ran for the country’s 33 parliamentary seats by the proportional system. In addition, fifty individuals, 27 of whom self-nominated, vied for the parliamentary mandates by the majority system.
