Yerevan /Mediamax/. The presidential elections in Armenia will be
composed of two rounds, "since the candidate from the ruling party
does not have sufficient image for gaining victory in the first round".

Mediamax reports that the Heghine Bisharian, Head of the pre-election
staff of Artur Baghdasarian, the candidate for the position of the
President, Leader of "Orinats Yerkir" Party (OYP), said this in
Yerevan today.

According to her, "the victory of the candidate from the ruling party
in the first round is possible only in case of mass falsifications".

Bisharian stated the readiness of OYP to withstand "any undesirable
events in the process of the pre-election campaign".

"We count on the entry of our candidate in the second round of the
elections", Head of Artur Baghdasarian's pre-election staff stated.
