Armen Rustamyan, #1 on ARF Dashnaktsutyun’s Party list, says he has voted for “Armenians and the Armenian land.”
“Our people have great expectations from these elections, and I have voted for the fulfillment of those hopes. I hope the public will not get disappointed and will see the Armenia it dreams of,” Rustamyan told reporters after casting his vote.
He assessed the voting process as “positive, with no major frauds.”
“There have been separate reports on various issues, even vote-buying, but we hope the law-enforcement bodies will follow the process to ensure that these elections are unprecedented,” Rustamyan said.
He stated that whichever place ARF takes, it will continue implementing its programs.
