Kim Balayan Election Annulled

YEREVAN (Armenpress)–The Yerevan Electoral Commission annulled the results of a parliamentary by election held Sunday–which garnered a win for Armenian Revolutionary Federation member Kim Balayan.

The reason cited for terming the election invalid was the alleged disappearance of 600 sealed electoral ballots. Speaking to Armenpress–Kim Balayan said he was going to file a suit against the Yerevan Electoral Commission for abuse of power. Simultaneously he will appeal to the Constitution Court to validate him as elected parliament deputy.

This was the third round of by-elections in this district.
