Bloc Armenian National Congress - People`s Party of Armenia concerned  over recent political disagreements

ArmInfo. Bloc The Armenian National Congress - the People's Party of Armenia expresses its concern over the political disagreements that have become more  frequent during the election campaign.

As the Bloc's statement reads, the situation prevailing in the  country is the result of ineffective work of law enforcement  agencies. The bloc calls on the authorities to identify and punish  the guilty as soon as possible.  "The timely identification and  punishment of perpetrators in various incidents will contribute to  the legitimacy of the election campaign and the equal participation  of all political forces in it", the statement reads.

To note, only yesterday there were two new incidents. During the  pre-election campaign of the Ohanyan- Raffi-Oskanian bloc, in Odzun  village of Lori region, between the bloc's representatives and  supporters of the ruling Republican Party, a clash occurred. As  stated in the message of the bloc, during the campaign, its  representatives were attacked by the Republican Party of Armenia  (RPA) representatives and a scuffle began.

This night, supporters of the candidate of the Republican Party, the  head of the department for state property management and son of the  Speaker of the Parliament Galust Sahakyan, Arman Sahakyan tried to  settle scores with the candidate for deputy from Tsarukyan bloc, the  owner of Cherry restaurant, deputy Vahan Karapetyan. Although  Sahakyan himself explains the incident solely by everyday motives,  which have nothing to do with the election campaign.

Recently, fights involving the use of weapons between members of the  ORO and the RPA took place in the village of Djrarat. As a result of  the incidents several people were injured. To note, the current  elections are distinguished by the particularly aggressive attitude  of the Republican Party and its candidates, despite statements by the  country's leadership that the electoral process should be crystal  clear and democratic.  Particularly with his repressive methods of  action, the governor of Ararat region Aramais Grigoryan distinguished  himself, who began dismissing officials who did not participate in  the agitation of the Republican Party. In the Ararat region, fights  also occurred between the candidates from the RPA itself.

Earlier, in the Aragatsotn region, the candidate from RPA Bazmaser  Araqelyan beat the ARF Dashnaktsutyun party supporter. At night,  supporters of the candidate of the Republican Party, the head of the  department for state property management and son of the Speaker of  the Parliament Galust Sahakyan Arman Sahakyan tried to settle scores  with the candidate from Tsarukyan bloc, the owner of Cherry  restaurant, deputy Vahan Karapetyan. Although Sahakyan himself  explains the incident solely by everyday motives, which have nothing  to do with the election campaign.
