Opposition Parties Skeptical About Sarkisian=?UTF-8?B?4oCZ?=s Election Pledge

October 19, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Armenia’s leading opposition groups dismissed on Friday President Serzh Sarkisian’s latest pledge to ensure the proper conduct of the upcoming presidential election.

Addressing a European People’s Party congress in Bucharest on Wednesday, Sarkisian said his administration will do its best to ensure that the election scheduled for next February is “free, fair, transparent and democratic.” He said it is already taking “preparatory measures” stemming from the recommendations of European observers that monitored Armenia’s May 6 parliamentary elections.

Both the European Union and the United States have given a largely positive assessment of the legislative polls won by Sarkisian’s Republican Party of Armenia (HHK) amid opposition allegations of fraud and vote buying.
