Yesterday, the Central Electoral Commission of the Republic of Armenia issued a warning to the ruling Civil Contract Party and acting PM Nikol Pashinyan for violating the procedure for the day of election silence. The "Armenia" bloc, which is led by second President Robert Kocharyan, noted about this in a statement in connection with Sunday’s snap parliamentary elections.
"(…) the mentioned measure of accountability has been applied only to that party during the election campaign.
(…) since yesterday, insulting and hateful materials about the leaders of the ‘Armenia’ bloc have begun to be widely circulated in various places. (…).
Also, we have received information that based on false reports, members of the regional headquarters of the ‘Armenia’ bloc are being apprehended on an obviously unfounded basis since yesterday. (…).
There have never been such irregularities of the electoral process on such a large scale in the history of Armenia, and we call the attention of all international observation missions to these continuing irregularities," the statement also reads, in particular.
