Building of Central Election Commission inaccessible for persons with disabilities (video)

The building of the Central Election Commission is terribly inaccessible, says Unison’s president Armen Alaverdyan.

“It is very embarrassing that the building is in such condition. There is enough territory to build a ramp. After that, it will be possible to talk about cooperation and equal participation.”

“If the elections are inaccessible, they cannot be considered fair,” says Martin Sargsyan, Vice-President of the Blind Union. According to him, the discriminatory attitude cannot be justified and ignored by the bodies that are developing the electoral policy.

“A person with a disability, if necessary, in case of an assistance for voting, must submit a paper from the doctor. It’s absurd, a person should have the possibility of an assistance, and this must be fixed by law. “
