Parliamentary Election Monitor

Elections in Armenia are usually overshadowed by incidents of violence such as the stabbing of an opposition campaign manager during the 2003 Presidential Election, and sometimes — as was the case in the village of Shahumian during the last parliamentary election or in Nor Hajn during the 2005 local election — even killings. Recently, an internal spat in an opposition party resulted in physical attacks, and RFE/RL reports that a brawl has been reported between the two expected front runners this time round, Prosperous Armenia and the ruling Republican party.CRD / TI Election Monitor 2007 writes, adding, that rivalry between the two pro-presidential parties can be considered a significant factor in how the election plays out.
