ICES: Armenian election is legitimate and democratic2013-02-19 14:28
The Observer Mission of the International Expert Center for Electoral Systems (ICES) considers the election in Armenia legitimate and democratic, the News-Armenia reports.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"Presidential election in Armenia was legitimate, democratic and in line with international standards", said the President of the International expert Center for Electoral Systems Alexander Zinker.
However, the mission noted a number of technical shortcomings during the election, in particular, the absence of conditions for some election commissions, lack of power in some areas, and the crowds at the ballot stations.
As recalled by the Armenia Today, current President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan has won the presidential election.
According to preliminary data of the Central Election Commission, on the basis of counting ballots from all 1,988 polling stations, Sargsyan won 65.64% of votes, while Raffi Hovannisian scored 30.10%.
The election was attended by 1 million 521 thousand 931 people, or 60.18% of voters.
