ArmInfo. From early morning, various political forces, organizations and state structures have been reporting various violations in the course of electoral processes in Armenia.
Thus, the Investigative Committee of Armenia, minutes earlier, announced the arrest of a citizen in the Lori region of the Republic of Armenia on suspicion of giving an electoral bribe. According to the ministry, a resident of Lori region, working in one of the companies in the city of Spitak, knowing that the company's director's son was included in the electoral list of one of the blocs as a candidate for lawmaker, called his fellow villager and offered to support him by offering AMD 10,000 as bribe. Having received a refusal, he called another fellow villager and promised to cancel the debt of 7,500 AMD if he votes for the bloc indicated by him in today's elections. A criminal case was initiated on the fact, the suspect was detained.
Deputy Chairman of the Republican Party of Armenia Armen Ashotyan also reported on violations during the elections. The latter said that he was receiving information about the use of administrative resources in military units. "The newly appointed commander of the military unit Mehrabi is sending the servicemen to choose the geek (implies acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan - ed. note). In Khndzoresk, the soldiers were treated to ice cream on behalf of the geek, so that they would choose him. First, the army was in the mouth of the Turks, and now our guys are under the gun of the internal Turks, "he said
Ashotyan also said that according to his information, in a number of polling stations, bulletin No. 6 is not included in the general package. "At the request of our citizens, only a new, full-fledged package of ballots is compiled. 2 cases have been registered in Davtashen.
The "Armenia" bloc also reports on flagrant violations. According to the information of the bloc, searches are currently being carried out in the central headquarters of "Armenia" of the Sisian community of Syunik region and in the houses of the heads of the headquarters.
The bloc also circulated a statement in which it drew attention to the fact that the Central Election Commission of Armenia had issued a warning to the Civil Contract party and Nikol Pashinyan for violating the Day of Silence. "It should be noted that this measure was applied only to this party during the election campaign. Moreover, since yesterday, insulting and hateful materials against the leaders of the" Armenia "bloc began to circulate in different places. According to our information, this shameful process was organized by the Soros organizations with the permission of the outgoing government. Moreover, during the same period, posters of the "Republic" party were posted in clear violation of the law.
We also received information that from yesterday and until now, members of the territorial headquarters of the "Armenia" bloc are detained on knowingly unfounded grounds on false denunciations. There is reason to believe that these denunciations were organized preciselyby Soros organizations.
There have been no such violations of the electoral process in the history of Armenia, we draw the attention of all international observation missions to these continuing violations. We call on the police as soon as possible within a few hours to identify and bring the customers, distributors and producers of offensive and hateful materials addressed to the leaders of the "Armenia" bloc, especially since the corresponding videos are already available on the Internet. Otherwise, we will consider that this process is organized and directed by the authorities, "Bloc said in a statement. Violations are also signaled by the Election Control Committee. According to the movement, they received information that the ruling Civil Contract party is distributing anti-agitation leaflets with a photograph of Robert Kocharian throughout the city of Yerevan, attracting persons who are employees of the community organization of Yerevan, who are obliged to clean the streets of the city at night.
They were instructed to visit the offices of the Civil Contract and receive packages with leaflets. As ArmInfo previously reported, with reference to the RA Police, a scuffle between representatives of the Prosperous Armenia and "Verelk" parties with the use of weapons took place at the polling station in Masis.
