YEREVAN. – An unnecessary concentration of power in the hands of the prime minister is taking place in Armenia.
Nikol Pashinyan, head of the opposition “Way Out” Faction of the National Assembly of Armenia, expressed such a view at Monday’s parliamentary briefings.
As per Pashinyan, this situation may create very major political problems for Armenia and its future development.
“This is of great concern to me,” he added, in particular.
And when asked by reporters whether, considering the powers and privileges which the next prime minister of Armenia will have, the next president can change anything in the country—especially since the presidential candidate has been nominated from the ruling party, the opposition faction’s leader responded that presidential candidate nominee—serving ambassador to UK—Armen Sarkissian is making demonstrative statements.
“And let’s see how the reality will be,” added Nikol Pashinyan. “At any rate, our position basically will not change from that.”
