Aram Karapetyan thinks almost everyone is dissatisfied with the outcome of the election. Only the Republican Party is satisfied. Aram Karapetyan believes that the facts they have are so forceful that it will not be easy not to respond to them. “There was electoral fraud, abuse, if the Constitutional Court is unbiased, the result of the voting should be declared invalid.” Aram Karapetyan found it difficult to say how many cases of fraud there were, but he informed that about 400 thousand votes were tampered.
