Authorities fear that Armenian National Congress’ “voice” will reach PACE – ANC ...

YEREVAN. – The opposition Armenian National Congress’ (ANC) National Assembly (NA) Faction leader, ANC Central Office Coordinator Levon Zurabyan met with NA Speaker Hovik Abrahamyan and raised the issue of forming Armenia’s new NA delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE). Zurabyan himself informed this during a press conference on Tuesday.  

In his words, Abrahamyan noted that the old delegation can still function for six more months following Armenia’s NA elections, which were held on May 6. 

Zurabyan, however, believes that even if the law allows this, NA chairman should have acted according to logic, that is to say, a new delegation should have been formed and this would have reflected the election outcome.

“Not doing this means they are afraid the Congress’ voice will reach PACE,” added Levon Zurabyan.
