"But the government should pay attention to two issues in connection with election legislation – composition of election commissions and process of appeals. The assembly hopes that the Armenian Parliament will deal with the removal of current problems in the Electoral Code within the cooperation with the Venice Commission. The PACE hopes that free and fair elections will be held in Armenia in 2007-2008," APA reports.
