12:36, 22 January, 2013

YEREVAN, JANUARY 22, ARMENPRESS. In respect of political, economical,
and social issues presidential candidate Arman Melikyan will not start
his election campaign until the Central Electoral Commission of the
Republic of Armenia does not call into life to his demands. Among
other things Arman Melikyan stated that he applied to the Central
Electoral Commission of the Republic of Armenia to find out the
exact number of the Armenian citizens, who had recently left the
country. As reports "Armenpress" during the press conference held on
January 22 Arman Melikyan noted: "To my opinion the number of voters,
which has already been publicized, is not accurate and participation
in the elections seems to be meaningless, if the Central Electoral
Commission of the Republic of Armenia does not provide the number of
the citizens, who left the country."

Notwithstanding Arman Melikyan did not exclude the possibility of
resignation and mentioned that he will choose the most efficient
option.

The election campaign launched on January 21 and will last until
February 16. The deadline of submitting resignations to the Central
Electoral Commission of the Republic of Armenia is 18:00 o'clock,
February 8. The electronic votes will launch at 08:00 o'clock on
February 9 and last until 20:00 o'clock February 13. The votes will
kick off on February 18 at 08:00 and will last until 20:00 o'clock.

Final results of the presidential elections will be announced on
February 25, 2013.
