POLITICAL PARTIES WHICH GOT NEARLY 5% PERCENT CAN BE INCLUDED
In case the political parties, which lost the parliamentary election, are included in the election committees, larger halls for the election committees will be necessary because there are over 70 political parties and organizations in Armenia which can participate in the election. This viewpoint belongs to Member of Parliament Vahram Baghdasaryan. Our news reporter tried to find out his attitude towards not including the political forces which did not enter the parliament.
Vahram Baghdasaryan is against including them in election committees but he approves the claims of certain political parties that the forces whose votes were close to 5 percent must be included in election committees. “If we consider the problem from this aspect, in other words, that a little less than five percent should be taken into account, those who got 1 percent can also be taken into account,” says Vahram Baghdasaryan, who is, in fact, a representative of a political force which is not in the parliament, he is member of the civic action group of the Unity for Armenia party. However, Vahram Baghdasaryan does not consider himself member of this political party, and he says his membership will become clear after the conference of the party. Baghdasaryan considers himself member of the People’s Deputy group saying that the group might not be political itself but each of its members got more votes under the majority system than certain political parties. Therefore, Vahram Baghdasaryan says People’s Deputy should be included in the election committees.
