Four candidates have announced their candidacy for the July 19
presidential elections in Nagorno Karabagh. Incumbent Bako Sahakyan
will face Valery Khachatryan, vice-rector of the Stepanakert branch
of the Armenian State Agrarian University for Science and Education,
Arkady Soghomonyan and National Assemblyman Vitaliy Balasanyan. All
are independents.

Sahakyan was the first who stated his intention to run for the
presidency, for another five-year term in office. Despite the fact
that Sahakyan is not affiliated with any political party, at the last
elections in 2007 he was supported by all parliamentary parties. It
is not excluded that the same will take place this time around as well.
