Hayk Marutyan: I voted for the bright future of Yerevan

ArmInfo. I voted for the bright future of Yerevan, "Hayk Marutyan, a famous actor, candidate for mayor of Yerevan from the block" My step ", said in a  conversation with journalists.

Talking to journalists about who, in his opinion, Armenians intend to  vote for Hayk Marutyan as an individual or as a candidate for the  block "My step", Marutyan stated that "politics is a team process ,  and voting for me, you vote for the whole team, and all of us  participate in the team. It is voters who decide everything, and this  question should be addressed to the voter, not me>. Answering the  question that the Prime Minister of Armenia also actively  participated in the election campaign, and this is not "the use of  the Prime Minister's resource," Marutyan said: "Prime Minister Nikol  Pashinyan is the head of the party" Civil Contract. "And he has the  right to participate in the pre-election campaign as much as he deems  necessary. " As for the fact that other party candidates, for example  Alen Simonyan, Sasun Mikaelyan did not participate in the election  campaign, Marutyan noted that this was their personal decision.

As for the threats to other candidates, Marutyan stated that he has  no information about these cases. "To be honest, I do not have  information on these threats, I can find out the details of this case  from the police, but I want to note that black PR has often been used  against our bloc, but I want to note that during the election  campaign it should be so, this is a completely normal process, but  the passions are heating up, agitation is in full swing, and after  the elections, I think the tension will subside, "Marutyan said. At  the same time, he stressed that every candidate can and must assert  that it is his political power that will win.

Marutyan noted that the most important for him is well-being of  Yerevan. "I and the representatives of our bloc are ready to work in  any format, for us the most important is the prosperity and  prosperity of our capital, which way we will achieve it is not  important." For the benefit of our Yerevan we are ready to cooperate  with various political forces, " mayors.

Asked what the Marutyans can say about the fact that the RPA  representatives joined him during the election campaign, the  candidate for mayor said: "I do not know who exactly joined us when  we were agitating citizens. Do you really think that I I know  everyone who joined us during the campaign or at rallies, moreover, I  have no right to allow or forbid anyone to join us, "the actor said.  Concerning whether Marutyan thinks that Robert Kocharyan is behind  the PAP, the latter noted that he does not have such facts.

The candidate for mayor stated that the main problem of Yerevan at  the moment is the problem of garbage, which he intends to deal with.  Marutyan also noted that 14 years ago he had the opportunity to live  abroad, but all this time he lived in Yerevan, and will live here,  since he considers the capital of Armenia to be the best city on  earth.

The actor said that there are forces that tried to obstruct the  transparency of elections, however, did not begin to note who  exactly. Marutyan also assured that he will monitor the elections  without violations. The candidate for mayor of Yerevan also stated  that he is ready to congratulate any candidate who will win, as in  the past 23 years these are the first fair and free elections in  Armenia.  Recall that the need for early elections arose after the  former mayor of the Republican Republican Taron Margaryan resigned.  After the Council of Elders could not elect a new mayor, the  government of the Republic of Armenia terminated the powers of the  members of the Council.

To conduct elections today, from 08.00, all 475 polling stations  opened. Voting will last until 20.00. There are four blocs and eight  parties in the elections. According to the results of the vote, the  first number of the list of political force, which received more than  50% of the vote, automatically becomes the mayor of the capital of  Armenia. If none of the political forces collects more than 50% of  the votes, then all factions included in the Council of Elders are  entitled to nominate their candidate who must be elected by secret  ballot by a majority vote of the members of the Council consisting of  65 members.
