PAP yet on April 25 rose a question on testing stamp ink - Vartan Oskanian.
In the May 6 parliamentary elections the Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) employed new election rigging methods.
At a Thursday meeting of the joint campaign headquarters, Vartan Oskanian, a member of the Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP), spoke of phased election rigging: ink vanishing, inflated voters’ lists, unprecedented voter turnout early in the morning, vote count, etc..
“After all this, have I the right to doubt that there was a plan,” Oskanian asked.
He mentioned that the PAP yet on April 25, during the Monitoring Committee summed by NA Chairman, in which the party also attended, rose a question on the occation of ink demanding to carry out a test before the elections but it was not implemented at the end. Then the CEC Chairman just called all this nonsense.
He noted that the publication of post-election lists of voters would answer the questions. However, Armenia’s Constitutional Court ruled such a procedure unconstitutional.
So 86 percent of Armenia’s voters participated in the voting, which is absurd. Even in democratic states voter turnout does not exceed 50%, Oskanian said.
