Electoral Commission rejects BHK’s appeal against Independent Observer organization’s chief Daniel Ionessyan. On the election eve, when politicians aren’t allowed to rally or preach, Ionessyan said they have proof that BHK was distributing money to flash-mob participants, some of whom were observers. BHK argues that he should not have said that publicly because that is considered a political propaganda. Ionessyan argued that the 32nd clause of Electoral Code allows the Observer’s commission to disclose such information even on the election eve, because they had information about a potential illegal activity, and that the law prohibiting propaganda on that day isn’t clear on that part and leaves gray areas. After the elections, Ionessyan released a phone conversation confirming that BHK's members distributed the funds. Today, the Electoral Commission has sided with Ionessyan and rejected BHK's complaint. BHK could still take the case to court. https://news.am/arm/news/473635.htmlhttps://news.am/arm/news/473640.html

Few months ago we learned that PM Pashinyan made changes in prison administrations. Now we have some details about the latest reforms coming directly from a prisoner in the form of a letter to Hetq. The long-term prisoners who behave good, write poems and are busy with creating things, are receiving encouragement letters and bonuses. They get more fresh air walks, more time to meet with family. All prisoners now receive higher quality meals, fruits and vegetables. http://hetq.am/arm/news/93508/iravitchak-e-pokhvel-naev-nubarashen-klor-bantum.html

PM Pashinyan cycles to work on a revolution-themed bike given to him as a gift. Says he used to smoke 2 packs of cigarettes a day, but hasn’t touched one since 2004. Wants to get fit. Today was Yerevan Color Run 2018 festival https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhRPSRS-Tek

... says many investors are waiting for the next Parliamentary elections to have a long-term picture. Says he is willing to negotiate with HHK and other parties, who want the elections next year, to hold the snap elections this year. So far, however, all other major parties are against it because they are afraid of losing their seats. Pashinyan doesn't rule out mass-rallies to convince the parties to agree with it. At the moment, HHK is de-jure the ruling party. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rkhlT48fmg
