Sociologist: The talks that only money will affect the results of the May election are a myth

  • Wednesday, April 11, 22:24

Within the frames of the campaign sociologists hold researches and publish reports. If we take into consideration the past predictions which became true, we can say that Armenian citizens are well aware of these problems  and the talks that only money will affect the results of the May election are a myth, sociologist Aharon Adibekyan said at today's press-conference.

He said that statements by the leaders of many parties are absurd. Five out of eight parties which will run for parliament at the forthcoming election, said that they will gather major part of votes, but only two of the coalition parties have such a chance. The Heritage party said that it will gather 50% of votes although it has a chance to gather only 6%. The communists say they will gather 17% of votes, but their limit is just 2%. If we sum up prediction of all
the parties, we shall have about 250%. The members of the parties do not understand that the National Assembly is not a taxi and has a strict number of seats", - Adibekyan said.

He also added that the world political experience shows that if the results of the elections  do not meet predictions of the party, the leader of the party is obliged to tender his resignation. As for Armenia, there is not such a practice here. "The leaders of the Armenian parties have to understand
that the success at the election depends not on false statements about their privilege but on impartial assessment of their potential. In general, the political culture has grown in the country and citizens have started understanding the importance of the elections. They understand the importance of their vote. For this reason, 70% of voters turnout is expected. However, one should take into consideration that 30% out of these 70% of voters have not yet decided who to vote for", - he concluded.
