ARMENIA ENTERS 2012 WITH HEAVY POLITICAL BURDEN – ARF-D REP
Armenia is turning off the year with a heavy political burden,
Lilit Galstyan, a member of the Armenian Revolutionary
Federation-Dashnaksutyun (ARF-D), has said.
“We have reached an edge that promises nothing good for Armenia’s
future,” she said, pointing out to the country’s large foreign debt,
regress in anti-corruption and democracy policies, poverty rate and
Galstyan expressed doubts that the authorities will demonstrate a
political will to hold free and transparent elections.
“The authorities’ political conduct already demonstrates that the
election results will be falsified, with the active vote-catching
already in process,” she said, calling upon the political forces to
join their efforts to hold transparent polls.
