Democracy Wins: PM Pashinyan Comments on Election of Mayor in Abovyan City

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan commented on the election of mayor of Abovyan city held on June 9 where the ruling Civil Contact party’s candidate has lost the election, Armenpress reports.

Pashinyan said democracy won in the Abovyan election. “As for the defeat of the Civil Contract party’s candidate, we have carried out the revolution for this reason so that the pro-governmental candidates will sometimes win and sometimes lose the elections. And if you remember, before the revolution the main slogan for many years was the need to eliminate the monopoly of the Republican Party of Armenia. These elections once again recorded that Armenia is a democratic country, its citizens have a right to make their choice, and the leadership doesn’t use any illegal resource”, the PM said.

He stated that people’s power is established in Armenia.
