The Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia has rejected the claims of presidential candidates Raffi Hovhannisyan, leader of Heritage Party of Armenia, and Andreas Gukasyan, a political scientist and radio operator, that the presidential election was manipulated.

Hovannisian and Ghukasyan had applied to the Court, requesting that the Court reject the election results. The Court however denied the claim, upholding the Central Election Commission's (CEC) assessment that there had not been any violations.
