Addressing the ralliers in Yerevan's Freedom Square, Garegin Chugaszyan, a senior representative of the Pre-parliament initiative, said he was in the square at the invitation of Raffi Hovannisian.
"Our hearts are beating together for free and fair Armenia," said Mr Chugaszyan.
He said that people do not have time to err. "Armenia has turned into a colony with open borders. Change the midwife and make Freedom square a maternity home," he said.
In his speech, public figure and political scientist Suren Zolyan said Raffi Hovannisian is a pioneer and he came to the square to defend his rights.
"I do not want to offend Raffi, but I voted for presidential candidate Andrias Ghukasyan... I respect the majority opinion and today I am here to support Raffi. I do not think that it is so difficult to open the 2000 ballot sacks in electoral precincts. In that case the authorities will be amnestied and no one will speak bad things about them."
At the proposal of Heritage party member David Sanasaryan, the participants observed one minute silence in memory of military surgeon Vahe Avetyan, who was mercilessly beaten at the Harsnakar restaurant in Yerevan in June 29, 2012 and died in hospital without regaining consciousness. Then he read out the letter of Avetyan's sister addressed to Raffi Hovannisian.
