Armenia Special police forces forcibly apprehend residents of Parakar village who closed the highway


Armenian police special forces forcibly apprehended residents of the village of Parakar who closed the highway leading to Zvartnots.

And the road has been reopened.

The residents of Parakar had blocked this highway because it had been several hours since Volodya Grigoryan – the mayoral candidate of the village of the Country to Live party – and his teammates were not allowed to enter the town hall building.

The police closed the entrance to the town hall of Parakar where the inauguration of the new mayor of the village was scheduled for today.

The Country to Live party, which considers its candidate Grigoryan to have been elected mayor of the village in recent local elections, has set up a platform outside and held a nomination.

The police informed that there was a legal dispute over the results of the aforementioned local election, and that is why they are not allowed to allow them to enter the community hall building.

As Armenian News-NEWS.am reported earlier, the situation is tense Thursday morning in the village of Parakar in Armenia.

Today is the investiture day of the new mayor of the village, but the fact is that two people at a time – those at the top of the electoral rolls of the Country to Live party and the “Davit Minasyan” bloc – consider themselves elected community leader.

Following the local elections in Parakar, the Country to Live party won ten seats in the Parakar village council, the “Davit Minasyan” party bloc nine and the ruling Civil Contract Party in Armenia two.

First, Volodia Grigoryan, the candidate of the Country to Live party, was nominated for the post of village mayor and was elected by ten votes. According to the Country to Live party, the law allows 40% to elect the only candidate appointed at the head of the community.

After that, Parakar village council members supporting Davit Manukyan’s candidacy came to the council, and they elected the mayor of Manukyan village, with 11 votes, or over 50 percent.
