Is it possible to hold fair elections?

In the article entitled “The Big Game” the New Option blog discusses the promises of government to hold fair elections:

“…the Election Fraud machine formed in Armenia in 1995, and during the past ten years it has become some kind of a state institution on its own right.
The Election fraud machine also has control over business, privatization process…: Each participant of this Big Game gains his share of access to levers of power within the state, in accordance to their contribution, or their market share of the ballot rigging…:
Will the people in power be able to break that Machine? So far they have only been able to manage, control, use it – but it takes much more then that to break it. It takes extreeme measures and wide public participation…”
