19.7% of the voters are ready to sell their votes during the May 6 parliamentary elections. This has already become a tradition in Armenia, representative of the Exit Poll Social Research Center Levon Andreasyan told journalists on Friday.

The survey held by the Center among 2,710 people in Yerevan and regional centers Mar 22-Apr 8 on the request of the Black Sea and Caspian Region Institute of Political and Social Research has shown that 9.4% of the voters will vote because they believe in the promises given during the election campaign, 12% because their friends or relatives have asked them to, 16.6% because they are in opposition and 19.7% because they hope to get money for their voters.

"This is very dangerous as the last group may become a tool in the hands of external forces," Andreasyan said.

 According to the Center, five of the nine running parties will pass the 5% barrier - the ruling Republican Party of Armenia, Prosperous Armenia, the ARFD, the Armenian National Congress and Heritage - of whom the RPA and Prosperous Armenia will secure more than 50% of the votes.
