Armenia: Pondering Scenarios

Unzipped says he believes one scenerio ahead of the 19 February presidential election is that Orinats Yerkir's Artur Baghdasarian will pull out of the race and support another opposition candidate instead. However, the blogger believes, the chances of an opposition victory would be possible only in a first round of voting. Failure to unite at all would mean certain defeat.

  • Important clarification: perhaps, I was not clear enough in my post, but when I wrote about chances for opposition victory, I meant through second round of voting; and I believe that chances will be higher if they unite before the first round of votes. I do not think anyone realistically stands a chance of winning this election in a first round of votes.

    More details further clarifying my position – in comments section of my blog.
