February 26, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

More Western leaders have joined in the congratulations of Armenia’s incumbent President Serzh Sargsyan who was officially declared winner of the February 18 presidential election in Armenia on Monday.

In his message addressed to Sargsyan U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry stated his agreement with the OSCE/ODIHR preliminary findings that the elections were “generally well-administered and characterized by a respect for fundamental freedoms”.

“But there is work that remains to be done,” he added. “Moving forward, I hope Armenia will continue to increase transparency, promote multiple viewpoints in the mainstream media, and encourage citizens’ active participation in reforms and governance, as well as address the outstanding electoral issues raised by the OSCE.”
