The Press Conference of “Citizen Observer” Initiative was hosted by Media Center on March 27 during which the preparatory activities of the observers and the appealing system of electoral violations during the Parliamentary Elections were introduced.
Political parties participating in the elections in Armavir region mainly targeted at agricultural issues, from the improvement of irrigation system to the increase of efficiency and productivity in rural economies.
Political parties and alliances participating in the elections mainly focus on fighting against corruption, security and the resolution of social and economic problems in their programs and campaign promises both on the national and local levels.
Before the Parliamentary Elections in 2017, Media Center hosts the individuals who conducted observation missions in Armenia to make their experience and the recorded violations public as well as to make recommendations for the beginner observers.
Violence cases for political reasons during the pre-election campaign in various regions of Armenia are the consequence of instable political culture, on the one hand and the so-called “rating” electoral lists, on the other hand.
The final identification of problems related to the murders and injured persons on March 1, 2008, as well as the lack of adequate political and legal assessment on the state level, became one of the main obstacles to the development of Armenia.
