/PanARMENIAN.Net/ At today's news conference organized by "Transparency
International Armenia" and "Armenian Committee of Helsinki Civil
Assembly" Vanadzor Office, organizations' leaders made statements
on numerous violations during yesterday's elections into the Council
of Elders.

"Never in their lives did our observers feel so ashamed," "Armenian
Committee of Helsinki Civil Assembly" Vanadzor Office Coordinator
Arthur Sakunts spoke of the elections.

Bakunts expressed his readiness to visit voters at their apartments
to clarify whether they participated in the elections, using the help
of police and public prosecutor's office representatives.

Yet Amaliya Kostanyan, "Transparency International Armenia" Chairman,
voiced her doubts about effectiveness of check up, noting that "people
are scared, and the check up will give no results". She also stated
that she sees no opportunity to collaborate with state authorities,
believing such attempts to be futile.
