Decision 2013: Students urge boycott in wake of election

February 25, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Several hundred students of Armenia’s state universities and institutes have declared an open-ended boycott of classes as an act of protest against what they say was fraud in the February 18 presidential.

The students on strike are those who have given their votes and their support to official runner up of the presidential election Raffi Hovannisian. The opposition candidate has been holding massive actions of protest since February 19, claiming that he is the actual winner. Students demand to “annul the election results and hold new elections”. (Meanwhile, the Central Election Commission today approved the final results of the elections giving victory to incumbent President Serzh Sargsyan).
