As obvious as it is that the priorities of our agenda are related to external challenges, I shall nevertheless record that this quality of local elections, when the citizen is the Master and Decider, is our long-held dream come true. Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan wrote this on Facebook Monday morning—and in connection with Sunday’s local elections in several communities of Armenia.
He added as follows: "I know and understand the viewpoint that it would be better if the elections were rigged, but we would have a higher level of security. But my conviction has been, is, and will be that it is the long-standing practice of election-rigging that has undermined the system of state resistance emerging in the early 90s and led to security disasters through chain reactions.
Statehood and state institutions; this shall be the guarantee of our Future."
