As Armenian News-NEWS.am reported earlier, the Peace and Democracy party decided to nominate famous Armenian writer, journalist Hayko Baghdad in the parliamentary elections. Later a decision was made to nominate Ismet Shahin and Ishkhan Zakaryan. However, it is yet unclear why the party failed to nominate an Armenian.
