ArmInfo.Our party did not officially support anyone during the election of Mayor Abovyan. On March 9, MP from the Prosperous Armenia faction Iveta Tonoyan said this during parliamentary briefings.
She noted that the representatives of the PAP party have personal acquaintances and friendly relations with the mayor of Abovyan. "However, the head of the party has repeatedly noted that everyone is equal before the law. And every person, if he has violated the law, must be held accountable for his actions, regardless of personal relations. And we fully support this position," Tonoyan emphasized.
It should be noted that a criminal case was opend against Mayor Abovyan Vahagn Gevorgyan. The latter is accused of unauthorized seizure of communal land and illegal construction. Despite active campaigning organized with the participation of the Prime Minister of Armenia, Gevrogyan bypassed the candidate from My Step last year, becoming Mayor of Aboyan. In turn, there were constantly rumors in the society that although the PAP did not participate in the campaign, it supported Gevorgyan's candidacy. Gevorgyan himself does not plead guilty.
