This time even votes of opposition figures to be rigged – expert

January 15, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

The elections were over after Armenian National Congress leader Levon Ter-Petrosyan and Prosperous Armenia party leader Gagik Tsarukyan decided not to run for presidency, political and election technologist Armen Badalyan told the reporters on Tuesday. He said these elections will be rigged in several respects.
“Figures at February elections will be drawn. The first drawn figure will be the number of voters. This time even the votes of opposition figures will be falsified with the second place being given either to Raffi Hovhannisian or Hrant Bagratyan to show the West that competition exists in Armenia,” he said.
Political analyst Gegham Nazaryan is also of this opinion, noting that the outcome of elections is also predetermined with the only issue being the ensuring of enough number of participants.
“These elections will be the most shameful and will be like the elections in Turkmenistan when all knew that their beloved leader will be elected. These elections are just like a regular event in the country,” he said.
Armen Badalyan said in reality the authorities would have liked Gagik Tsarukyan to run for presidency and lose and not the elections be determined 2 months before the elections.
“Serzh Sargsyan’s influence will weaken after February 18. Each person will work for himself with ANC and PAP gradually entering the fight. In five years we will see a real fight,” he said.
