- YEREVAN.- ARF Dashanktsutyun will support the candidacy of 168 Zham daily Editor-in-Chief Satik Seyranyan in the fourth electoral district.
The decision was made taking into account that Satik Seyranyan is an independent candidate, ARFD member Aghvan Vardanyan told journalists on Monday.

Vardanyan himself is number four in the proportional list of ARF Dashnaktsutyun.
