Pashinyan has been demolishing state institutions and particularly courts and the Constitutional Court for some illogical and personal goals for a long time now. This is what co-founder of the Pan-Armenian National Movement, former director of the National Security Service, politician Davit Shahnazaryan.
“This government has been acting against the law and the Constitution for a long time now. This is completely part of the logic of Pashinyan that was declared twice (“There is no judge in Armenia who can say ‘no’ to me”). This is an unconstitutional process and a brilliant manifestation of illiteracy. I regret to say that the representatives of the incumbent authorities are illiterate and don’t know that there is separation of powers and judicial independence. Neither the Prime Minister nor the Speaker of the National Assembly has the right to interpret the Constitution and the decisions of the Constitutional Court. The decisions of the Constitutional Court are final. They need to understand this. The Constitutional Court is an independent body, and these actions of the parliament and the Prime Minister are strictly unconstitutional. This was direct pressure on the judge,” Shahnazaryan said.
According to him, the current parliament of Armenia has not become established as a political authority.
