Local Elections: Disappointed People and Passive Opposition
June 5, 11:00

Political forces consider local elections important. Few of the opposition, however, run for the posts at local governments. The same situation is observed during the pre-election period of the June 7 elections. 

The opposition forces actually explain the passive participation in the local elections with the scarcity of resources and obvious election results.

The voters in 32 communities of Armenia are heading to polls on Saturday to elect members and heads of local governments. Twenty of the communities are electing governors, 12 - only councils of elders; votings for both will be held only in 20 communities. The majority of the election runners are members or nominees of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia. Only three candidates – two from the Prosperous Armenia party and one from the Armenian Revolutionary Federation-Dashnaksutyun – represent the political opposition.
