YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–Armenia’s Central Electoral Commission Friday announced the final results of the May 30 National Assembly elections–with six parties garnering the more than five percent of the votes needed to fill the 56 proportional seats in the new National Assembly
Below are the names of parties and percentages as announced by the CEC. In coming days these figures might change–since the results indicate certain discrepancies in the count.
1. Unity bloc – 41.67%
2. Communist Party of Armenia – 12.1%
3. Right & Unity bloc – 7.97%
4. Armenian Revolutionary Federation-7.83%
5. Country of Laws-5.28%
6. National Democratic Union – 5.17%
Article 115 of Armenia’s electoral law determines how the party votes are counted and the number of seats each party receives based on the percentage of the votes. The law also determines the number of remaining seats alloted to parties based on the fractions of the percentages received in the elections. Based on CEC estimations–the ARF will have five deputies on the proportional front. However–taking into consideration the election law stipulations–the ARF is to receive seven seats–which would bring the toltal number of ARF representatives to 10.
Names of deputies elected to the National Assembly are published in item 10.
