Aram Sargsyan, leader of Menk bloc’s list, says he has cast his vote for “today and the future.”
“I have long been dreaming of the day when people will go to polls on their own will without any election frauds, vote-buying and pressure,” Aram Sargsyan told reporters.
“I have always considered that free elections are extremely important. If there are fair elections in the country, everything else will fall into place,” he added.
Aram Sargsyan said he has voted “for today, the future, for keeping the good memories bright.”
