Expert about NKR elections: each nation has right to shape own power

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian political expert Stepan Grigoryan commented on EU’s and a number of countries’ statement on recognition of Nagorno Karabakh (Artsakh) Republic’s presidential elections held on July 19.

“All of the basic conventions of the UN or the Council of Europe stress each nation’s right to shape own authorities. Want it or not the world will be forced to come to terms with it,” Mr. Grigoryan said.

The expert further noted that no Artsakh president remained in office for more than two terms, in contrast to several neighboring countries.

According to preliminary results of the Nagorno Karabakh (Artsakh) Republic’s Central Election Commission, the incumbent leader, Bako Sahakyan, gained 47 085 (66,7%) of the votes to win the presidential race.

His major rival Vitaly Balasanyan garnered 22 966 (32,5%) of votes while Arkady Soghomonyan received 594 (0,8%) of votes.
