Pashinyan's Alliance Wins Snap Parliamenary Election in Armenia

"Armenian citizens can be sure that the results of the vote will depend exclusively on their will", he promised, voting at the extraordinary elections on Sunday, acting Prime Minister of the Republic of Nikol Pashinyan. The polls results were more or less correct: "in addition to "My Step", the parliament will include Prosperous Armenia and Marukian's party, former part of the Yelk block, which probably is turning into a regime of constructive opposition to the Pashinyan government", he said. For second place the Republicans will have to deal with "Prosperous Armenia" businessman Gagik Tsarukyan.

The turnout of the elections was low at 48.6 percent.

On November 1, the country's president signed a decree to dissolve the parliament after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, who is seeking to refresh Armenia's political system, resigned in late October in order to give a formal reason for the dissolution of the parliament and thus force early elections. The former ruling Republican Party (HHK) and the Dashnaktsutyun party failed to meet the 5 percent threshold required to make it into the legislative assembly. Under Armenia's constitution, 30 percent of seats in parliament must go to opposition parties. "Times of turbulent elections are behind us", he said.

Pashinian earlier hailed the "clear and transparent" elections and told reporters that "citizens of our country are voting for a revolutionary majority, and they are doing it in a calm environment".

Previous elections have been marred by accusations of fraud but Pashinyan had last week promised "the best elections Armenia has ever seen".

However, it appears that this new "John Romero" game is just a megawad for the original Doom and nothing more. Sigil is the spiritual successor to the fourth episode of Doom , picking up where the original left off.

A party needs at least five per cent of the vote to be elected to parliament, while an electoral bloc must clear a seven-per cent barrier.

"The general absence of electoral malfeasance, including of vote-buying and pressure on voters, allowed for genuine competition", the statement, which also summarized the findings of other global observers, said. The alliance of acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan promises to ensure further development of relations with Russian Federation based on equality and mutual respect for national interests.

Pashinyan also suggested he would stick with existing policies on the long-running issue of Nagorno-Karabakh.

The Social Democrat Hunchakian Party's Central Committee congratulates the citizens of the Republic of Armenia on conducting fair, free and transparent snap parliamentary elections.
