Wet wipes erase passport ink stamps of Armenian voters : Hovannisian
headquarter chief

YEREVAN, February 18. /ARKA/. The ink stamps in Armenian voters’
passports are erased by wet wipes, Hovsep Khurshudyan, a spokesman for
presidential candidate Raffi Hovannisian’s campaign headquarter, told
Novosti-Armenia agency on Monday.

`This thing refers to all passports regardless of a polling station,’ he said.

The complaints about the ink stamps in passports were also signaled on
May 6 parliamentary elections in Armenia. At that time, the ink was of
a low-quality and was disappearing quite quickly (it should have
disappeared not earlier than 12 hours).

The spokesman also said the observers had reported on ballot stuffing
in Tashir village.

`Our representatives tried to protocol the violations, but the heads
of commissions do not allow us to do so,’ he noted and added they had
received signals some ballot stuffing would be done in other polling
stations of the republic.

Armenia’s presidential elections kicked off on February 18 at all
polling stations at 8 a.m. sharp.

Hovannisian’s headquarter disseminated a video which shows the
passport ink stamp is easily erased by hydrogen peroxide.
