ARMENIA'S ELECTION CODE IS BREACHED - NEWSPAPER
- YEREVAN. - Pursuant to Armenia's Election Code, the candidates, political parties, and party alliances running in elections can set up campaign headquarters once the elections are announced. But these headquarters cannot be set up in buildings used by state and local government bodies, and in those buildings where there are election commissions. This notwithstanding, calls are coming in, according to which the ruling coalition's senior partner, the Republican Party of Armenia's (RPA) campaign headquarters is operating in the Municipal Library of Berd city, Zhamanak daily writes.
"[Also,] There are RPA campaign headquarters in the art schools of Agarak and Ijevan, and in the regional tax inspectorate of Meghri [city]. A RPA campaign headquarters is set up also in the village hall of Syunik village.
And the [coalition's junior member, Prosperous Armenia Party] PAP has set up one of its campaign headquarters at the kindergarten of Azatamut village," Zhamanak writes.
