Raffi K at Life in Armenia says that Friday was a day full of bad news for Armenia [1]. However, he doesn't know which was worse — former president Levon Ter Petrosian running again for office [2], the postponement of a bill to recognize the Armenian Genocide in the U.S. Congress [3], or attempts by Russia, Belarus, Armenia and four Central Asian countries to restrict the activity of international monitors during elections. The Armenia Election Monitor 2008 blog covers the latter news in more detail [4].
