YEREVAN, February 2 (Itar-Tass) – The attempt on the life of presidential candidate Paruyr Airakian was crime against a statesman and against the Armenian statehood, President Serzh Sargsyan said on Friday. In the evening he visited Yerevan’s St. Gregory Hospital to cheer the wounded politician.
“It is nakedly clear that those behind the crime planned to influence the normal course of elections,” Sargsyan said.
“I would like everybody to be certain. Our law enforcement agencies will do everything in their powers to solve the crime,” Sargsyan said. The incumbent, also registered as a presidential candidate, is the indisputable leader in the ongoing presidential election race. The voting is due on February 18.
