Negative Campaigning

Former and would-be future Armenian President Levon Ter-Petrossian is admitting to past errors:
"Speaking on November 16 to some 20,000 supporters at a rally in Yerevan, Levon Ter-Petrossian admitted to having made major errors during his tenure as president from 1991-1998, for which he expressed 'belated but sincere' apologies, RFE/RL's Armenian Service reported. Ter-Petrossian singled out as his gravest error of judgment having appointed two Armenians from the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, Robert Kocharian and Serzh Sarkisian, to government positions in Yerevan."

Robert Kocharian played a role in Ter-Petrossian's ouster and succeeded him as president. Serzh Sarkisian is the nominee of Kocharian's party against Ter-Petrossian.
