Expecting real changes in electoral system naivety - political analyst

Political analyst Hayk Martirosyan said that the opposition does not agree with the results of municipal elections in Vanadzor and Gyumri. “For finding solution to the issue one of the parties must stop its strive to the power. This is the only way to have normal situation,” Martirosyan told Nyut.am.

According to the analyst, as to the post-electoral situation, it is not excluded that the situation will calm down but all know  that the mayors have serious deficit of legitimacy so it will not be easy for them to rule.

As to the Electoral Code, which has been hailed by the opposition ANC faction Levon Zurabyan, who said that the agreement reached over the publication of voting lists is the achievement of democracy seekers, Martirosyan stressed it will not bring any changes to the election culture.

“Those who rig elections would have never agreed over the issue unless they are convinced there is a way to bypass it. We shouldn’t be naïve and think that the electoral culture is being changed,” he stressed adding that expecting real changes in enrooted sick election system will be a naivety.
