Today, I wish to speak to you about the municipal elections held in the Republic of Artsakh on 8 September. Why? Quite simply because these elections in Artsakh were exceptional due to their legitimate and democratic nature. On 8 September, in all 228 municipalities of the Republic of Artsakh, municipal elections were held. What makes these elections all the more resounding is that the elections of municipal councilors and mayors took place at the same time in all mun...
