(PanARMENIAN) - "Ter-Petrosyan's team disagrees with the data provided by the Armenian Central Electoral Committee," the candidate's staff member, Haykakan Zhamanak editor Nikol Pashinyan told a press conference today.

"The election was held with grave violations which affected the results. Besides, the number of voters the CEC presented is incorrect, what simplified the falsification process," he said.

Pashinyan pointed out to "energy cuts in the polling stations during the counting of votes, beating of empowered persons."

"We possess information that Levon Ter-Petrosyan is leading in Yerevan. But the CEC doesn't publish the results from the polling stations where Ter-Petrosyan won," he said.

Pashinyan said that despite assessments of observation missions, a rally will take place at Matenadaran tomorrow and "Ter-Petrosyan's supporters will take all legal measures to counteract violations and falsifications."
