Gallup: Armenia is a European-type country, but it does not yet have a fully fledged political system

  • Monday, May 7, 05:11

The past elections have shown that unlike the other CIS republics, Armenia is a European-type country, but it does not yet have a fully fledged political system. In Armenia people vote for personalities rather than ideas, expert of Gallup International Association Andrey Raychev said on Armenian TV.

At the same time, Gallup's exit poll has shown that Armenian voters are mostly consistent in their political preferences.  Raychev is sure that the two key coalition forces - the Republican Party and Prosperous Armenia - will both enter the new parliament, but the gap between them will be narrowing as more votes are counted - for almost 40% of the voters refused to say who they had voted for but they hardly seemed to favor the leader.

Raychev said that the final results of Gallup's survey will be ready by 11:00 AM Monday.

According to Gallup's last exit poll results, the Republican Party has secured 43.3% of the votes, Prosperous Armenia - 29.3%, Heritage - 6.5%, Armenian National congress - 6.4%, Orinats Yerkir - 6.2%, ARFD - 5.2%, Communist Party - 2.2%, Democratic Party - 0.6% and United Armenians - 0.4%.
