ArmInfo. Artsakh presidential candidate Masis Mayilyan made a statement on his Facebook page. In particular, he noted: "I sincerely thank the thousands of citizens who voted for me on March 31, my political partners, all of our supporters.
The elections in Artsakh were held on March 31 in extraordinary and unprecedented conditions. Despite the fact that many presidential candidates and political forces participating in the parliamentary elections called on the country's leadership to postpone the elections, the authorities decided at all costs to bring the process to its logical end. In the mentioned emergency conditions it was impossible to ensure the participation of international observers, and the members of the Armenian observation missions, in order to avoid danger, had to change the observation methodology and fulfill this mission not to the extent to which they originally planned to do it.
We are currently conducting political consultations and will inform the public about our next steps in the coming days''.
It should be noted that on March 31 the presidential and parliamentary elections were held in Artsakh. According to the NKR Central Election Committee, the second round of the presidential election will be held in the republic, since not one of the presidential candidates scored the required 50% + 1 votes for the final election victory.
The second round of the presidential election will be held 14 days after the vote, that is, April 14. According to preliminary data from the CEC, former Prime Minister Arayik Harutyunyan won 49.26% of the vote, while Foreign Minister Masis Mayilyan won 26.4. Vitaly Balasanyan, former secretary of the Security Council, is on the third place, who gained 14.7%.
