YEREVAN, May 6 (Itar-Tass) — Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan has said he voted for progress of his country at the parliamentary elections that take place in Armenia on Sunday.
“I have voted for progress of Armenia,” the president said. He said he wished that “today, tomorrow and the day after tomorrow everything proceed calmly, peacefully, in accordance with our law”.
“I believe this is a guarantee of Armenia’s progress,” the president stressed. President Sargsyan thanked media for its work during the election period, for offering “all political forces a possibility to present their point of view to the public”.
A portrait of the president, who leads the election party list of the Republican Party of Armenia, was removed on Sunday from the entrance hall of the school hosting a polling station where the president voted. This was done not to violate the ban on campaigning on the election day.
