Support for Sarkisian

Amid the usual claims of fraud, supporters of President Serzh Sarkisian took around 75% of the votes in Armenia's parliamentary elections:
"Armenia's Central Election Commission says President Serzh Sarkisian's governing Republican party took 44.05 percent of the vote after all ballots from the contest on May 6 were counted.

"The victory puts the party in a commanding position in parliament and boosts Sarkisian ahead of presidential polls next year.

"The junior partner in the country's current governing coalition, the Prosperous Armenia party, came in second with just under 31 percent."
Judging only from the tone of the media coverage leading up to the election,  these results are a bit suspicious.
