April 9 turned into a strange day with both officially reelected President Serzh Sarkissian and his opposition challanger Raffi Hovannisian swearing in as presidents of Armenia.
The settings were rather different, as you can see from these two videos below:
The day turned a little scary when a couple of dozen opposition supporters taken to the police and the nose of a key oppositionist, Armen Martirosyan’s, was smashed into a bleeding condition in an incident with the police. The rumors about the murder of a young man, which later turned out to be unrelated and news about Raffi Hovannisian losing consciousness amid clashes with the police exacerbated the situation.
In the end, however, the day ended rather peacefully.
