Businessman, Opposition Candidate Khachatur Sukiasyan Appeals to Election Commission
On Mar. 17, 2012, SIL Group Co. Ltd. co-owner, former Member of Parliament and current candidate for the upcoming parliamentary election Khachatur Sukiasyan asked the no. 10 territorial election commission (TEC) not to take into consideration the Mar. 15 RA Police Passport and Visa Department letter and to register him according to procedure as an election candidate.
Recall, the RA Police Passport and Visa Department states that Sukiasyan is ineligible to run in the May 6 parliamentary election because he hasn’t been permanently residing in Armenia in the past 5 years.
In a statement issued by the businessman and opposition candidate today, Sukiasyan says that the TEC has not yet made its decision.
“Foreseeing the No. 10 TEC’s decision, which becomes obvious from the information unilaterally disseminated by mass media outlets controlled by the government, considering that, I believe, a negative decision will made as late as possible so that you try to deprive me of the opportunity to make use of my rights, and also in terms of time (and we know quite well that election campaigning is implemented at certain times), I ask you to please make the decision regarding me as early as possible,” he writes.
