YEREVAN, May 5 (RIA Novosti)
Some 2.5 million Armenians are eligible to vote in parliamentary elections on May 6, according to the final list released by the police on Saturday.
“The total number included in the register was 2,484,003 voters,” the police press service reported.
Eight parties and one party alliance are participating in the elections.
On Friday, a total of 144 people were injured when balloons burned explosively at a rally of the Republican Party of Armenia in the capital Yerevan. The balloons were supposedly filled with helium, a gas that does not burn, but evidently some other gas had been used instead, Armenian media reported.

Some people are trying to make the reality in Russia at least a bit more humane. The amnesty should apply not only to persons involved in high-profile cases, but also to individuals who are not as well-known. It is better to set free at least some of the individuals who deserve to be released than no one at all.
