Aharon Adibekyan, the unique representative of the Armenian sociology, complained yesterday that his forecast on the NKR presidential elections turned out right while the campaign headquarters of General Vitaly Balasanyan is dissatisfied. “Now when he lost, he says I launched a campaign against, as if my forecasts influenced the public opinion,” Aharon says.
According to the CEC, Bako Sahakyan received 66.7%, Vitaly Balasanyan got 32.5%. Aharon Adibekyan had predicted 70% for Sahakyan and 5% difference, according to him, is determined by the small number of respondent, only 960 instead of the ideal 1600 people.
He also said that splits are very dangerous and unacceptable in a post-war country, adding that during wars they usually try to avoid opposing and remain united.
Aharon Adibekyan feels bad after each election. Everyone knows the so-called official sociology of Armenia is not directed by people’s moods but the government’s mood. The officious sociologists of Armenia, including Aharon Adibekyan, create numbers and “grounds” for the governments which have nothing to say and which achieve these numbers through violence, fraud and intimidation.
It has nothing in common with the public opinion which is proven by all national elections. It is not clear what should to happen to make people believe Aharon Adibekyan, even if he says the truth.
As to the recent presidential elections in NKR, Bako Sahakyan, as well as others, know very well what happened in reality. It is good the government made Aharonyan make the mistake of 5%. In general, it would have been better if the Karabakh government had turned Aharon and other PR people of Yerevan back from the check point of Lachin and spoke to its people without evoking Yerevan’s vicious sociological numbers and old ideas on the war and union. The heroic people of Karabakh do not need it, they do not need the toasts of the political forces of Armenia for whom Karabakh is a dead area where their complexes and ambitions could be satisfied.
Bako Sahakyan’s second term may be considered over. In general, after the second election, the presidents are “ignored” because they will leave after that term. Hence, Bako Sahakyan’s greatest service would be to link his destiny to Karabakh unlike the previous presidents of NKR Robert Kocharyan and Arkady Ghukasyan and not pave the way for those who think Karabakh is a topic of toasts for the Armenian political forces and lobbyists but establish it as a full subject of international law and international relations with a vibrant and creative environment. The heroic people of Karabakh have such potential which has been tried to be eliminated for already 20 years.
