As RFE/RL's Artur Papyan notes, while Gymuri is important, the latest numbers say it won't make a difference in the national count. The latest numbers for the region:

Turnout: 50.6%
Eligible voters: 125,000
Total votes cast: 63,000

Even if Hovhannisian wins with 70%, that means he wins a bit less than 45,000 votes -- probably not enough to turn a national tide.

Calling it a night:
21:32 18.2.2013
20:56 18.2.2013
After asking his supporters to head to polling places to defend his proxies (each candidate can have three per district), Raffi Hovhannisian is now calling on his followers to NOT go to polling places.

ՈՒՇԱԴՐՈՒԹՅՈՒՆ

Խնդրում եմ խուճապի չմատնվել, գիշերը չգնալ տեղամասեր, կռվի և այլ սադրանքների չենթարկվել:
Րաֆֆի Հովհաննիսյանի դիրքերը ամուր են:
Տեղում անհրաժեշտության դեպքում օգնության կհասնեն ՎՍՏԱՀԵԼԻ նաձինք:
Վտանգ կա, որ որոշ ուժեր կփորձեն սադրել ու ստրվերել Րաֆֆիի հաղթանակը:
Հիշեք նախընտրական իրադարձությունները:
Զգոն, հանգիստ ու հավասարակշռված:

Խնդրում եմ տարածել:

RFE/RL TRANSLATION:

ATTENTION - Please don't panic, don't go to the polling stations, don't get into fights or give way to provocations. Raffi Hovhannisian is controling the situation. If there is a need, RELIABLE people will help our proxies in the polling stations. There is a risk, that certains forces will try to provoke and cast a shadow over Raffi's victory.

Remember the pre-election developments. Be alert, calm and balanced.

Please Disseminate.

Differing messages coming from the Hovhannisian camp, to say the least.
