"Armenia" bloc accused international observers of bias and serving  Pashinyan`s interests

"Armenia" bloc accused international observers of bias and serving  Pashinyan`s interests

ArmInfo. The "Armenia" bloc harshly criticized the activities of international observers at the RA elections.

Thus, the Bloc's statement notes that at a press conference on June  21, the international observation mission, presenting preliminary  data from monitoring the electoral process, stated that the elections  were generally held properly, although a number of significant issues  remained.

The Bloc recalled that they do not recognize the election results and  will appeal them to the Constitutional Court of Armenia, and will  also make efforts to mobilize other election participants, both to  challenge the election results and various episodes of the election  campaign.

The "Armenia" bloc periodically expressed serious concern and  presented to the international community the systemic violations  committed by the ruling power during the election campaign. The bloc  also presented convincing evidence to the OSCE / ODIHR mission and  other foreign missions operating in Armenia.

Violations were associated with abuse of power, the spread of hatred,  abuse in the criminal justice sector.  The elections that have taken  place contradict the principles of the 1990 Copenhagen Document, as  well as other international obligations, "the Bloc said in a  statement, while emphasizing that this information and statements  were ignored by international observers.

The Bloc pointed to the obviousness that international observers  failed to maintain the minimum requirements for impartiality.

"International observers should not be composters for the decisions  of Pashinyan and his political team.  The results of these elections,  in fact, prove that public confidence in this electoral process has  been undermined by serious controversies, which further emphasize the  need for urgent changes. It is no wonder many voters are concerned  about the legitimacy of the elections and the reliability of their  results.

Public confidence in the electoral process is important in terms of  participation in elections and acceptance of their results. This is  very important, especially when elections are held in difficult  conditions, such as the 2020 war in Nagorno-Karabakh, especially when  there is such a high level of political polarization, "the bloc  concluded.

To note, yesterday, international observers gave a positive  assessment of the organization and conduct of electoral processes in  Armenia, pointing out several minor violations, which, according to  their assessment, did not affect the results of the elections.

Meanwhile, local observers, as well as the office of the RA  Ombudsman, have repeatedly voiced the problem of sowing enmity and  hatred in society, especially on the part of the current government.
