Statement by the Spokesperson on the early parliamentary elections in Armenia

On 9 December, Armenia held early elections to the National Assembly, which were the first national elections after the political transition of April-May 2018.

As stated by the International Elections Observation Mission, these elections “were held with respect for fundamental freedoms and enjoyed broad public trust that needs to be preserved through further electoral reforms".

The European Union is committed to a stable, democratic and prosperous future of Armenia. The early parliamentary elections were important in terms of enhancing public trust towards the electoral process in Armenia. We expect all stakeholders to continue concerted efforts towards further democratisation and modernisation of the country.

We look forward to working with the democratically elected new Parliament and the future Government to deepen our political and economic relations based on the joint commitments of the EU-Armenia Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement.
