The Policy Forum of Armenia, a US-based think thank and advocacy organizations, published and presented a report on Thursday detailing egregious violations and fraud during the May 2012 parliamentary elections in Armenia.
The report, “The Armenian Parliamentary Election of 2012,” provides an in-depth analysis of the political-economic and legislative developments leading up to the 2012 election. It also summarizes the reactions of key stakeholders — the opposition parties, foreign observers, and local civil society groups — to the election outcome.
“What particularly sets the report apart from other analyses, however, is the range of statistical tests, conducted by professional analysts, that support stakeholder reactions.
