"Freedom House is concerned with the disturbing outbreak of violent and hateful rhetoric used by Armenian politicians in this election period," the organisation said in a Facebook post, sharing Armenia's Ombudsman Arman Tatoyan's concerns voiced on the matter.

"These actions drive destructive polarization and hate speech in society as the country recovers from the Nagorno-Karabakh War and prepares for historic parliamentary elections. We call on all parties to refrain from such rhetoric and adhere to democratic norms of conduct throughout the election period." the organisation said.

To note, earlier Armenia’s Human Rights Defender (Ombudsman) Arman Tatoyan expressed deep concerns over the atmosphere during the election campaign, stating it further deepens the polarization in society and undermines the prospect of restoring solidarity in the country.

“This has to stop! All political forces must exclude insults and swear words, any rhetoric related to hatred and violence,” Tatoyan said in a statement on Wednesday.
