Armenia president predicted to dominate polls

Serzh Sarkisian appears set to win second term after campaign marred by attempted murder of rival.

    Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian is likely to win a new five-year term after an election campaign marred by an assassination attempt on one of his rivals and a hunger strike by another.

    Opinion polls suggest Sarksyan's victory in the voting on Monday is all but certain.

    The opposition has failed to unite and back the strongest challenger, diluting their influence on the outcome of the polls.

    Al Jazeera's Charlie Angela reports from the Armenian capital of Yerevan.
