YEREVAN. – Past daily of Armenia writes: There are two days left in the campaign for the snap parliamentary elections.
For the past ten days, the authorities have simply been engaged only in attempts to discredit—by all possible methods—the real opposition parties. In particular, [acting PM] Nikol Pashinyan and his team, realizing that their [popularity] rating is considerably declining with all social surveys and expert assessments and have no chance of being actually re-elected, try to apply exclusively anti-propaganda tactics.
In the last few days, the authorities are circulating "information" from time to time on the platforms serving them that as if electoral bribes are being distributed by the favorite opposition parties and blocs (…).
By the way, we have information that the law-enforcers mostly refuse to "fabricate" cases on this topic; that is, to find people who will "admit" that they have given or taken election bribes.
However, the authorities’ work in this direction continues, and it is not ruled out that they will make such shows in the next few days, especially on Election Day.
