A total of 25 parties and blocs were running for seats in the National Assembly. After electoral system amendments approved in April 2021, members of parliament are elected only through closed party lists by party list proportional representation method. Parties and alliances (blocs) need to pass the 5% and 7% threshold, respectively, to make it to the parliament.

According to preliminary results, Civil Contract, Hayastan and “I have Honor” blocs will have seats in the National Assembly, although the latter has not passed the 7% threshold. According to Armenian law, however, if only two forces have secured enough votes, mandates are also given to the third force with the most votes.
