YEREVAN. - It is yet early to talk about the registration of Armenian Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan as a deputy candidate during the parliamentary elections.
Chairman of the Central Electoral Commission (CEC) of Armenia, Tigran Mukuchyan, told the aforementioned to journalists on Wednesday.
“It will it be correct to speak about the registration of any candidate when the lists are ready and CEC launches the process. It is early to judge about something on the basis of different viewpoints or proposals. The law is very clear on who can be elected as a deputy: a person who has been only a citizen of Armenia and who permanently lived in Armenia over the last four years may be elected as a deputy. The Electoral Code provides for both time period and discussion related to any specific person. That is, when documents on nomination are submitted, time is given for the registration of the voter lists of parties,” Mukuchyan said.
