Members of "oppositional" parties are charging
that the incumbent Government is using unfair means
to limit oppositional candidates' campaigns.
Politicians and their handlers who are contesting the
February 19 election, say that the predominantly pro-government
television stations carry reports on the President's
daily activities and, by default, exclude other candidates
from public recognition. Further, they say Robert Kocharyan's
paid commercials get the best air time.
In 19 days Armenia will elect a President. Until then voters
will be talked to by candidates such as Stepan Demirchyan
(top). And some, such as President Robert Kocharyan (bottom),
will be talked back to.
