Artur Baghdassaryan's headquarters: Ter-Petrosyan's claim of 65% of votes inadmissible for us

PanARMENIAN.Net - On February 25, members of Artur Baghdassaryan's election headquarters issued a statement which says, in part, "Yesterday the RA CEC held an extra sitting to confirm the outcomes of the February 19 presidential election. The CEC informed of the meeting just 30 minutes before it started but not 2 hours as it's envisaged by the regulations. The meeting immediately followed completion of the re-count and thus deprived the candidates of the possibility to familiarize themselves with their outcomes. In this view we state that the results of the election were distorted."

"We condemn the arrests of political figures," it says.

"Levon Ter-Petrosyan's claim of 65 per cent of votes is also inadmissible for us... We state that use of force will escalate tensions and give way to mass collisions, thus damaging the international image of the country and questioning the entire election process. True to our 300 thousand supporters and responsible for hundreds of thousands of Serzh Sargsyan and Levon Ter-Petrosyan's voters, we call on the parties to resolve the problems via a political dialogue," the statement says.
