Armenian president re-elected in disputed polls
Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian has won re-election with over 58% of the vote, official results published on Tuesday showed, as his main rival cried foul.
The Central Election Commission said that tallies from all voting precincts, following Monday's election, showed former foreign minister Raffi Hovannisian in second place with 36.75% of votes cast, but Hovannisian insisted he was the real winner and called on Sarkisian to concede defeat.
