Elections in Armenia

Elections in Armenia gives information on election and election results in Armenia.

Armenia elects on national level a head of state - the president - and a legislature. The president is elected for a five-year term by the people (absolute majority with 2nd round if necessary). The National Assembly ("Azgayin Zhoghov") has 131 members, elected for a four year term, 56 members in single-seat constituencies and 75 by proportional representation. The seats envisaged for the National Assembly by proportional representation are distributed among those party lists, which have received at least 5 % of the total of the number of the votes. Armenia has a multi-party system, with numerous parties in which no one party often has a chance of gaining power alone, and parties must work with each other to form coalition governments.
