As we have already informed, candidate for member of Yerevan City Council from the Prosperous Armenia Party Ashot Andreasyan has spread disinformation through a special group created on Facebook throughout the election campaign. It is mainly manifested by spreading ridiculous and defamatory materials on rival candidates on the Internet.
The group was quite large, composed of 50 people. Ashot would place a defamatory article about one of the rival candidates, and the other members of the group were obliged to share these publications on their own walls and others pages. The best performers were encouraged by a free visit to the “Water World” aqua park.
This group also includes members of precinct electoral commissions appointed by the Prosperous Armenia Party in spite of the fact that law prohibits them to be engaged in election campaign. However, these people also actively participated in the pre-election campaign. It can be clearly seen from the photos posted by them on their Facebook pages.
Below we introduce the list of PEC members that were engaged in the campaign.
