A large number of men are waiting at the "gates" of Syunik Province for acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, who heads the ruling Civil Contract Party’s electoral list for Sunday’s snap parliamentary elections in Armenia.
The governor of Syunik, Melikset Poghosyan, is also there. But he refused to answer Armenian News-NEWS.am's questions, noting that he will not give an interview.
But to the remark that there is information that the employees of Syunik state structures were pressured to participate in today’s election rally with Pashinyan, the provincial governor said that there is no such thing; and one of those gathered added: "There are no people from state structures here."
Earlier, Armenian News-NEWS.am reported that a large number of police forces left for Syunik Province early in the morning.
