YEREVAN—The Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) Yerevan gomideh issued a statement on Friday regarding the May 14 Yerevan City Council Elections.

The statement, translated by the Armenian Weekly, can be read below.


The ARF Yerevan gomideh will be endorsing its working partner, the Republican Party of Armenia (RPA), in the upcoming Yerevan City Council Elections. This decision was made based on a joint commitment by the two parties to implement qualitative changes within the country.

We urge are members and supporters to vote for the list headed by Taron Margaryan on May 14.

Understanding the necessity of forming a City Council through conscious votes, the ARF representatives of local electoral commissions will do their part to ensure that the will of our citizens is freely expressed.

As previously announced, we [the ARF] are obliged to focus on all of Yerevan’s pressing issues and to participate in finding solutions to them, to the best of our ability.
