Only slightly more than half of the residents of the village of Nrnadzor in Syunik Province voted in Sunday's municipal elections, and though, according to preliminary results, the significant majority voted for the sole mayoral candidate, Mkrtich Mkrtchyan, villagers believe becoming mayor is not as important as owning land and salvaging crops after the winter frost. Nrnadzor, after all, is a small village, and it is confronted with more important issues on an everyday basis than elections for the village head and seats on the council.
