Ex-foreign minister of NKR, candidate for president of Armenia Arman
Melikyan will appeal to the Constitutional Court of Armenia over voter
fraud in the course of the February 18 presidential election. The
candidate told media on February 20 he expects little from that
process.

“The key election rigger is the Central Electoral Commission of
Armenia. I personally followed the vote calculation process broadcasted
by Shant TV where my vote percentage was higher than by data of the
CEC. The same happened to the votes of other candidates,” Melikyan
said. As regards the rally by candidate Raffi Hovannisian, Melikyan
said that he would not join him, because Hovannisian also participated
in that “comedy”. Melikyan is sure that the first president of
Armenia Levon Ter-Petrosyan has also legitimized the fake election
by participating in it, though he pained a cucumber on his ballot.

To note, by preliminary results of the election, the incumbent
President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan obtained 58.64% (861,160 votes),
the leader of Heritage Party Raffi Hovannisian – 36.75% (539,672),
Hrant Bagratyan – 2.15%, Paruyr Hayrikyan – 1.23%, Andreas Ghukasyan
– 0.57%, Vardan Sedrakyan – 0.42%, Arman Melikyan – 0.24%. The CIS
and European observers gave generally positive assessment of the
presidential election, calling it democratic and legitimate despite
some insignificant violations.
