Categories: Central Asia & Caucasus, Armenia, Elections, Governance, Politics

Writing on Ararat Magazine, Global Voices’ Caucasus Regional Editor interviews analyst Richard Giragosian and examines the political situation in Armenia ahead of parliamentary elections scheduled for 6 May 2012 [1]. Following the disputed 2008 presidential election which left 10 people dead, Giragosian argues that the authorities must learn to govern and not rule the country, warning that failure to do so will lead to an ‘explosive situation.’
