Sarkisian, Hovannisian Meet On Post-Election Tensions

February 21, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

President Serzh Sarkisian and his main election challenger, Raffi Hovannisian, met behind the closed doors on Thursday to discuss opposition demands for the annulment of the official vote results that gave victory to the incumbent.

The meeting requested by Hovannisian lasted for one and a half hour. None of its details or results were immediately made public by either man.

Sarkisian agreed to receive Hovannisian after the opposition leader accompanied by hundreds of supporters marched from Liberty Square, the scene of his post-election rallies, to the presidential palace in Yerevan.

Short video of the unexpected encounter released by the presidential press office showed the two main election contenders smiling and greeting each other. “You look kind of sad,” Sarkisian said, shaking Hovannisian’s hand. “No, [I am] righteous,” countered the latter.
