Decision 2013: Opposition leader rejects final election results, set to continue BAREVolution campaign

Opposition leader Raffi Hovannisian has rejected the final results of the February 18 presidential election published on Monday to certify that President Serzh Sargsyan’s has been reelected with more than 58 percent of the vote.

Hovannisian, who according to the Central Election Commission (CEC), polled nearly 37 percent of the vote, believes victory has been stolen from him. He has held public rallies in recent days to press Sargsyan to accept “the victory of the people” and step down.

“CEC members must be brought to responsibility in the strictest way for their clearly unlawful and antidemocratic behavior. Possessing the entire information, they have done nothing, and, therefore, they must bear responsibility for that,” emphasized Hovannisian at a press conference held shortly after the announcement by the election body.
