I am not a chemist, but if something is to vaporize, it will even with the slightest intervention, MP from the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (HHK) Gagik Minasyan said at the meeting with reporters.
He added that the ink stamp disappeared in is wife's passport five hours later though it was supposed to remain visible for at least 12 hours.
"Everything happens but I see no sense in linking this with election fraud," said the HHK lawmaker.
Mr Minasyan says progress was recorded in the February 18 election, with international observers being almost unanimous about the election outcome. They all said that the election was fair and transparent.
Despite the widely-accepted opinion that the election lacked competition, the Republican MP says the February 18 poll was highly competitive.
"Raffi Hovannisian even enjoyed victory in one of the provinces. The 37% of votes he secured in the vote is weighty political capital that can enable him to celebrate serious victories in the political field," he said.
Gagik Minasyan also said that the 43% of votes Raffi Hovannisian polled in Yerevan can help Hovannisian maintain achievements in the upcoming municipal elections.
The HHK representative says the post-electoral developments may develop in two scenarios. In the first one, the winner president must bring to the end the already started reforms and justify his pre-electoral promises. In the second one, the processes will go in undesirable way - be it a self-declaration as a winner president.
Mr Minasyan believes that Raffi Hovannisian is a discreet person and will choose the first option.
