Pope quotes Charents: Our turquoise sky, our clear waters, the flood of light, the summer sun and the proud winter borealis... our age-old stones ... our ancient etched books which have become a prayer

Comrade of former governor of Syunik region Suren Khachatryan, Republican Vachagan Adunts has been elected Mayor of Goris as a result of June 8 elections.
According to the local electoral committee, Adunts has polled 4,743 votes, his rival Hrayr Yolyan 2,959.
The pre-electoral situation in Syunik was quite tensed as among the hopefuls for the post were Tigran Karapetyan, the friend of current governor of the region Vahe Hakopyan, and Ara Budaghyan, the brother of Avetik Budaghyan, who was killed in a gunfight near the house of Suren Khachatryan, but, as far as ArmInfo is informed, the ruling Republican Party forced both to call back their candidacies.
