Ombudsman says voter list release up to court’s ruling

PanARMENIAN.Net - Commenting on the decision of several political parties to appeal to the Constitutional court with a demand to release the voter lists, Human Rights defender of Armenia said he can’t provide a specific answer as to whether voter lists publication would be correct or not.

“On the one hand, it will strengthen the control mechanism over votes; on the other hand, it may become a publican of personal information,” Karen Andreasyan said, refraining from voicing his opinion, saying he himself is interested in the court’s ruling.

A single inter-party headquarters to counter election frauds intends to address the Constitutional court with a request to rule the point of the Armenian electoral code banning publication of voter lists as unconstitutional.
