Today the Media Center hosted Varuzhan Hoktanyan’s press conference. The Transparency International Anti-Corruption Center Head spoke on the findings of the study of voter lists for the December 6 Referendum.
“The program, we expect, will interest all people who claim that they seek to have fair elections – political parties, observers, citizens who now have an access to these data and can check the information available about themselves,” said Varuzhan Hoktanyan.
During the press conference Hoktanyan navigated through several pages of the program site and spoke on the possible ways of forging the upcoming referendum. On December 6 the program will be updated online.
The authorities, though, are unlikely to use the program, Hoktanyan believes. Back in 2012 the Armenian National Congress appealed the results of the parliamentary elections and presented the findings available through the program but the Constitutional Court was reluctant to study thoroughly the data, insisting that those were not official numbers, the TI Head recalled.
