YEREVAN. – We go to the real crisis under the pretext of a fake Constitutional Court crisis. Opposition Prosperous Armenia faction MP Shake Isayan said this today at the National Assembly while discussing a draft law on making amendments and addenda to the law on the Constitutional Court, addressing Justice Minister Rustam Badasyan.
"I do not share your opinion that we have a fake Constitutional Court crisis," Badasyan responded. "It's a very real crisis."
He added that if there will be more than three Constitutional Court judges who would like to resign and go on early retirement, then the elections for the Constitutional Court judge vacancies would be held after the 15-day deadline for nominating candidates for the vacant Constitutional Court seat.
When asked what the purpose of the bill is, Badasyan said it resolves the task of having a new model of Constitutional Court.
