Paragraph 105

Only registered, national parties can run for the councils in Yerevan, Gyumri, and Vanadzor. Allowing local initiatives to form lists or local parties in a simple manner should be considered, in order to strengthen the local accountability of the councils. There can be self-nominated non-party candidates at community level, but not to the Councils of Elders in Yerevan, Gyumri, and Vanadzor (see the recommendation contained in paragraph 49 on this).
