VITALI BALASANYAN’S PRE-ELECTION HEADQUARTERS POINTS TO SOME BREACHES OF THE ELECTION LAW
Saturday, 30 June 2012 19:08
On June 28, NKR presidential candidate Vitali Balasanyan’s
pre-election headquarters sent a letter to the Central Electoral
Commission which runs about several breaches of the electoral law.
“Notice is hereby given that the news item under the title “Bridge
Artsakh 2012 – 4th Economic Forum Commenced” broadcast during the
Artsakh Public Television news program carried certain elements of
presidential candidate Bako Sahakyan’s electoral campaign. The
candidate for the Presidency and one of the NKR Ministers as well as
the author of the news item presented the achievements of the economic
sphere within the context of the latest 5 years. Broadcasting such a
news item during Public Television news program is a violation of the
requirements of Items 1, 4, Article 21, and Item 3, Article 23.1, of
the NKR Election Code.
We notice concurrently that presidential candidate Bako Sahakyan’s
agitation sections and election programme carry no information of the
organizations and individuals responsible for their publication which
is required by Item 6 of Article 22.
We expect you will take corresponding measures towards the restoration
of the rule of the law,” the letter to CEC Chairman Rashid Petrosyan
