Armenia election exit polls point to Republican Party win

May 7, 2012 – A Gallup exit poll in Armenia’s parliamentary election on Sunday predicted 44 percent of the votes for the ruling Republican Party, the party of President Serzh Sargsyan and the leading party in a two-party coalition. This is an increase from 33 percent in 2007.

The Republican Party’s partner, Prosperous Armenia, is expected to win 29 percent of the votes, according to Gallup, up from 15 percent five years ago.

If this exit poll proves accurate, this will mean a big win for the ruling coalition and humiliation for the opposition, the Armenian National Congress. The
Armenian National Congress has been vocally attacking the ruling coalition for years and this result is likely to be a big blow to its credibility.
