The bloc of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation – Dashnaktsutyun
[ARFD] and Movement 88 have issued a statement in the run-up to the
[19 June] parliamentary elections in Nagornyy Karabakh.

The statement says: “Our country’s tomorrow is in danger again. Some
puppets of the incumbent authorities want to secure parliamentary
seats for pro-government candidates with the aim of maintaining the
atmosphere of connivance, lawlessness, corruption and bribery as long
as possible. Abusing power, using levers of power and riches illegally
earned through misappropriation and embezzlement, ignoring human
and moral values and inspiring fear and terror, they want to achieve
their goals by using dirty tricks, breaking the law and giving bribes.”

The authors of the statement called on Karabakh citizens to unite
again around the idea of democratization and protecting human rights,
not to yield to the mendacious pledges of pro-government candidates
and to vote for the battle-hardened candidates of the bloc who were
tested in the crucible of the Artsakh [Nagornyy Karabakh] war.
