Vote 2013: Armenia in for most bizarre election in its history

December 21, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Armenia is having the most “latent” presidential elections ever as three days before the official start of the nominations it is not yet clear who will form the lineup of the strongest rivals to incumbent President Serzh Sargsyan. Some expert circles view it as a result of indifference and distrust existing in society towards the elections and the political forces’ ignoring public opinion.

Nominations will take place from December 25 to January 5 to coincide with the most frantic period of preparations for and celebration of the New Year and Christmas (January 6). People who are now busy preparing for the feast marathon, will, in fact, later be confronted with a list of candidates that most of them have nothing to do with. The timing of the nomination stage (coinciding with the holiday season) is imposed by the Constitution in accordance with the calculation of days remaining before Election Day, but it only emphasizes the complete detachment of society from political processes.
