Opposition Leader Against Boycotting Yerevan Council

An opposition bloc led by Raffi Hovannisian will likely take up its seats in Yerevan’s new municipal council despite considering the weekend local elections fraudulent, one of its senior members said on Tuesday.

Armen Martirosian, who topped the list of the Barev Yerevan bloc’s election candidates, stressed at the same time that it has not made a final decision yet. He said Hovannisian’s Zharangutyun (Heritage) needs to discuss the matter with smaller opposition groups aligned in the bloc.

“My personal view is that we must take up the Council of Elders mandates,” Martirosian told journalists. “I believe that just as Zharangutyun has been able to solve many issues related to individual citizens and social groups in the parliament, we have to work in the council as well.” He also said Barev Yerevan has a moral obligation to “disappointed citizens” that voted for the opposition.
