Presidential candidate Arman Melikyan may require postponement of election

2013-02-08 15:06

Armenian presidential candidate, former Foreign Minister Arman Melikyan does not exclude that he may apply to the Constitutional Court to postpone the election, the News-Armenia reported.


At today's press conference, Melikyan said this was connected to his statement on the electoral bribe, which, according to him, somebody tried to offer his mother.

Previously it was reported that the Special Investigation Service of Armenia was preparing materials on the Melikyan's statement that his mother had been offered electoral bribe.

"If the investigation of this case creates obstacles to the implementation of the campaign, I appeal to the Constitutional Court", said the candidate.

However, Melikyan said he hoped this would not happen.

Recall, earlier presidential candidate of Armenia Paruyr Hayrikyan, who was recently injured in an assassination attempt, would not initiate a postponement of the election. This was announced by his lawyer Levon Baghdasaryan on February 5.

Hayrikyan, who is still in the hospital, had the opportunity to appeal to the Constitutional Court with a request to postpone the voting day. According to the Constitution of Armenia, the presidential election can be postponed for two weeks, if a candidate faces "insurmountable obstacles" that hinder his election campaign.
