Have you heard that anyone from the authorities distributes election bribes? Say honestly, please. Acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, who is the ruling Civil Contract Party’s candidate for Prime Minister, said this Wednesday during their election campaign rally—ahead of Sunday’s snap parliamentary elections in Armenia—in Jermuk city, addressing those in attendance.

According to him, the aforesaid is one of the absurdities that the rumors about vote buying refer to the opposition. "But there is also good news. At the moment, five people have already been arrested on the case on vote buying. (…). at the moment, we have 55 people involved in the case on vote buying, and law enforcement promises us a 'harvest' quite ahead in the coming days.

But I want to make that 'harvest' further, and I want to make such a statement that the Civil Contract Party promises a reward of 500,000 drams—equivalent of 1,000 [US] dollars—for videos attesting to, proving vote buying," Pashinyan added.
