Politics vs management: RPA says Yerevan elections not political, opposition disagrees

While the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) believes next month’s municipal vote in Yerevan is not of political nature, the opposition forces contesting the elections have an opposite view.

Opposition members, in particular, say that the elections held according to party lists are a good opportunity to defeat the political majority. Thus, the Heritage Party of Raffi Hovannisian, which has teamed up with several other parties in a bloc called Hello Yerevan, believes the May 5 ballot will only reaffirm the de-facto “victory of the Armenian people” registered in the February 18 presidential election in which Hovannisian claims victory.
