Commission Affirms President's Reelection

September 30, 1996|From Times Wire Reports

Levon A. Ter-Petrosyan was officially declared the winner of last week's controversial presidential election, giving him five more years in office. The Central Electoral Commission said Ter-Petrosyan received nearly 52% of the vote compared with less than 42% for his main opponent, former Prime Minister Vazgen Manukyan. Ter-Petrosyan's margin of victory was smaller than preliminary figures and is likely to add fire to allegations by Manukyan's camp of fraud and irregularities.
