The coming parliamentary elections will become a litmus paper to determine future EU-Armenia relations, German Ambassador to Armenia Heike Renate Peitsch said today speaking at a conference titled “Free and Fair Elections as Foundation for Democracy”.

As a REGNUM correspondent informs, according to her, the European Union hopes that voting will proceed in accordance with OSCE's Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights norms. “Armenia is the first country to hold elections after signing the European New Neighborhood Policy. The action plan fixes interaction between Armenia and the EU for the nest five years and their continuation will depend on the quality of the election process,” she said.

“The EU wants that civil rights are observed during the elections, that members of election commissions carry out their duties on professional basis, and in case of fraud violators are to be punished in accordance with the law,” the German ambassador said adding that Armenia has an opportunity to hold fair and transparent elections, only political will of the authorities is needed for it.

Heike Renate Peitsch also noted that international community expects that democratic elections will be held in Armenia with positive progress in this direction.
