Independent parliamentary candidate assaulted in Armenian province

PanARMENIAN.Net - Some Armenian papers reported that Meruzhan Mkhoyan, independent candidate running for the parliament by majority system in Armavir province in Armenia was assaulted on April 6.

According to media reports, Mkhoyan was kidnapped from his own house and then beaten severely at a local cemetery.

Son of Nahapet Gevorgyan, MP of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) was allegedly one of assaulters. The MP refuted this information in an interview with Haykakan Zhamanak daily dubbing it as “lie and another show staged ahead of elections”. He declared that nothing happened, and he didn’t believe this could have occurred.

RPA candidate nominated in this constituency, owner of MAP company Alik Petrosyan also told the paper he was unaware of the incident saying he spent the whole day in Yerevan.

The paper says it didn’t manage to contact Prosperous Armenia’s MP Rustam Gasparyan representing Armavir province, while the Prosperous Armenia party said it had nothing to do with the incident.
