YEREVAN, March 11 (Itar-Tass) — Armenian current President Robert Kocharyan will be sworn in for the second five-year presidency term on April 9 at a special parliament meeting.
Kocharyan is officially declared the winner of the presidential elections.
Armenian Central Electoral Commission Chairman Artak Sagradyan has announced the final results of the second round of the elections, held on March 5.
Kocharyan won 67.44 percent of the votes, while the other candidate — leader of the opposition People’s Party Stepan Demirchyan — gained 32.56 percent.
The final results were summed up in six days, longer than usual because the opposition candidate’s election campaign team filed complaints to the electoral commission.
Kocharyan, who will be 49 this year, was elected Armenian president for the first term in 1998.
