YEREVAN, December 1 (Itar-Tass) — Presidential elections in Armenia will be held in February 2013, President Serzh Sargsyan said.
After the talks with European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso on Saturday, Sargsyan said, “I want to assure you that we oblige to hold the presidential elections in February 2013. The presidential elections correspond to the highest international criteria.”
Despite the fact that under the Constitution of Armenia, the presidential elections should be held in February, the month of holding them is announced for the first time.
Sargsyan, 58, was elected Armenia’s president in 2008. Under the Constitution, he can run for presidency once more.
The public opinion poll says the republic’s incumbent president is a certain favourite of the elections.
