ANC is afraid of a coup in Armenia2012-05-04 17:59
Representatives of the Armenian National Congress (ANC) are tightening their rhetoric on the eve of parliamentary elections and state about the possibility of a coup. This was reported by the Trend with reference to the Armenia Today.
Commenting on the question of what steps the opposition intends to take to prevent fraud during the election, a member of the ANC, former Prime Minister Hrant Bagratian said: "The Election of May 6 will be fully rigged, and we are well aware of this, we know that the process of mass distribution of bribes from the Republican Party, which has a monopoly even on the issue of bribes - law enforcement officers do not catch those Republicans who are handing out bribes".
He noted that the ANC has the evidence and even footage of bribing voters. On the second question of what does the ANC intend to undertake, Bagratian said that the ANC has become a part of a single headquarter to monitor the elections and that there was no other lever. "There remains only one possibility - the uprising, a coup or revolution". And the ANC has resource for the revolution in the country, Bagratian stated, saying that people come to the meetings of the Congress not by force, unlike the meetings of other forces; people from some of the settlements even send letters asking to hold a rally there, because people want to participate in the meetings of the Congress. It's not hard to turn this force into a revolutionary wave, Bagratian added.
Earlier, representatives of neighboring Azerbaijan expressed the opinion that there was every reason to doubt that the parliamentary elections in Armenia would be democratic. Massive falsification of voter lists were already registered: for example, they put too many voters on one address, or turn one voter into several by changing one letter in the voter's name, middle name and last name. According to the Trend, this position was expressed by the director of the Center of Political Innovations and Technologies, a political scientist Mubariz Ahmedoglu, at a briefing in Baku on Thursday.
"The West is turning a blind eye to these machinations, thereby demonstrating support to Serzh Sargsyan. Some elements that have formed by the elections are beginning to show themselves: the political processes are becoming criminalized, death cases registered", Ahmedoglu said.
According to him, the support to Sargsyan, provided by the West, is associated with certain conditions.
