Lragir.am had learned that according to the National Statistics Service the permanent population of Armenia is 3,275,500 as of April 1.
In an interview with Lragir.am Movses Aristakesyan, member of the Armenian National Congress, compared this data of the census conducted last year and made an interesting comment.
He says the permanent population of Armenia was 3,285,000 according to the census, while the resident population was 2,870,000. “It is evidence that the number of the population of Armenia was exaggerated during the census to further exaggerate the voters’ register. These data indicate emigration. It comes to prove that the real number of voters in Armenia is 1,400,000,” Aristakesyan says.
