Widespread violations at Armenian parliamentary elections
Armenia Today has reported widespread violations at parliamentary elections in Armenia.
Thus, it is reported that the seal, which the representatives of election commissions set in the passport of the voters, is easily erased after 20-30 minutes. Thus, there is a possibility that the same voter will vote multiple times. At polling station 34/18 in Gyumri for this reason the voting process has been suspended. At 8:50 local time the Central Election Committee instructed to continue voting regardless of this circumstance. A fight began in front of one of the stations between the authorized representatives of candidates and observers.
In addition, there are reports of attempts to bribe voters. For example, an opponent of the Armenian Republican party's canditate Seyran Saroyan - Hakob Hakobyan tried to give a pre-election bribe of 20,000 drams, but Saroyan increased their level of up to 50,000.
Social networks reported that the Rule of Law Coalition Party gives bribes to voters in the form of mobile phones.
Republic-wide parliamentary elections are held in Armenia. According to the data released by police earlier, some 2.5 million Armenians were registered as eligible to vote in the parliamentary elections.
Armenian CEC on the basis of the results obtained from the county commissions, will sum up the preliminary results of elections not later than 24 hours after the vote, and announced them in a live broadcast of the Public Television and Radio of Armenia.
The final decision on the election results will be made on the seventh day after the vote.
