Armenian Court Rejects Election Appeal

Court Watch Posted on

An Armenian court on Saturday rejected an opposition candidate's appeal of the country's disputed presidential election, the outcome of which has led to deadly clashes between protesters and police.

Election officials announced that Prime Minister Serge Sarkisian won the Feb. 19 election, but opponent Levon Ter-Petrosian appealed to Armenia's Constitutional Court, claiming fraud.

On Saturday, the high court noted there were some violations in the election but said they did not affect the results.

Supporters of Ter-Petrosian, Armenia's first president following the Soviet collapse, staged days of protests after the results were announced. Last Saturday, the government declared a 20-day state of emergency when clashes with police left eight people dead and more than 100 injured.
