14:07, May 7, 2012
Ruling Republican Party candidate Hakob Hakobyan, stated today that
he does not accept the victory of the declared winner, Sedrak (the
General) Saroyan, an independent candidate running in the single
mandate race from Election District 19.
Hakobyan says that he supplied local police with specific names of
bribe givers and takers one day before the election but that they
did nothing in response.
“They were even handing out bribes from parked cars during the
election. Those guys had a buch of passports with them. People would
pick up their passports from them before going to the polls. We have
the video tape of all this,” Hakobyan said, adding that the bribes
amounted to 10,000 AMD.
Hakobyan says he went to church that morning to pray for those
Armenians who are so in need that they were forced to take the money.
