During its session today, the Central Electoral Commission (CEC) examined the applications submitted by Edgar Ghazaryan and Naira Zohrabyan.
Based on the first application, the request was to annul the registration of candidate of Civil Contract Party for Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and institute administrative proceedings. Zohrabyan had applied to the CEC with the request that the CEC apply to the Administrative Court to annul the registration of the electoral list of Civil Contract Party. The reasoning was that the members of Civil Contract Party make offensive remarks.
With 5 “in favor” and 0 “against”, under the chairmanship of Chairman of the CEC Tigran Mukuchyan, the CEC rejected Edgar Ghazaryan’s application which, according to the CEC, was submitted by a non-competent body and should have been submitted by a political party or bloc running in the elections.
The CEC also rejected Zohrabyan’s application with the same justification and with the same number of votes.
Mukuchyan informed that the decisions on the rejection may be appealed to the Administrative Court in the course of three days.
