DURING THE VOTE COUNT THE ORINATS YERKIR PARTY’S VOTES WERE TAKEN AWAY FOR PRO-GOVERNMENTAL PARTIES: OY MEMBER
During the vote count of the May 12 parliamentary election in Armenia,
the votes given to the Orinats Yerkir party were deliberately taken
away, Hovhannes Margaryan, a member of the Orinats Yerkir faction,
said at today’s hearing of the claim of 4 political parties disputing
the parliamentary election returns.
In his speech, he dwelled on the events that took place in a number
of polling stations on May 12. "Our proxies and representatives
in the electoral commissions noticed several cases of voting with
new passports". An OY member of the district electoral commission
even recognized his neighbor who was trying to vote not with his
passport. Being recognized, the falsifier tried to take to flight,
H.Margaryan noted. "There were also cases of deliberate rigging of
votes," he said.
After a recess, the Constitutional Court continued the consideration
of the joint claim of the New Times, Republic, Orinats Yerkir parties
and the Impeachment bloc.
