Decision 2013: PAP justifies post-election demonstrations, warns against “use of force=?UTF-8?B?4oCd?=

The Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP) has effectively defended the street protests of Raffi Hovannisian regarding the February 18 election in which the opposition leader claims victory despite the official declaration of incumbent President Serzh Sargsyan as winner.

In a statement issued on Monday the PAP led by tycoon Gagik Tsarukyan also warned the authorities against using force against participants in public rallies and marches during which Hovannisian is hailed as the rightful winner of the ballot. It also urged the protesters to remain peaceful and abide by laws during demonstrations.

The party which boasts the second largest faction in the National Assembly but chose not to field a candidate in the presidential race (nor endorse any of the race participants) said the street protests have reflected “public distrust” in electoral processes and widespread discontent with “injustice” and other government abuses.
