Tsarukian=?UTF-8?B?4oCZ?=s Party Warns Against Yerevan Poll Fraud

Gagik Tsarukian’s Prosperous Armenia Party (BHK) on Monday threatened to boycott Yerevan’s new municipal assembly if it is formed as a result of fraudulent elections next month.

The BHK, which boasts the second largest faction in the Armenian parliament, will be among the key contenders in the municipal polls scheduled for May 5. It makes no secret of its hopes to win the largest number of seats in the Council of Elders and thus be in a position to name Yerevan’s next mayor.

“It would be very naïve if I said now that we trust in the authorities’ assurances,” said Naira Zohrabian, a senior BHK representative. “The authorities will definitely make use of their levers. We are already receiving many reports [of election-related irregularities] that are investigated by our campaign officials.”
