What you just did showed that you don’t have the political will to explore the corruption risks at Yerevan Municipality. This is what head of the Bright Armenia faction of the National Assembly Edmon Marukyan declared in parliament today, touching upon the fact that the ruling majority of parliament led the creation and formation of the probe commission to failure a short while ago.
“The issue has already been raised in parliament, and the Council of Elders of Yerevan doesn’t determine whether the powers of the National Assembly are constitutional or unconstitutional. If the head of the ruling faction thinks the Council of Elders has to determine our powers, I am simply disappointed. I would like to say that this is a bad precedent. This will lead to serious political consequences,” Marukyan said, adding that this is the first time such regression is being recorded at the level of the Constitution since the revolution.
“With this, you are showing the people that even though you would have a political majority in the probe committee, you are afraid of exploring the corruption risks and the Council of Elders of Yerevan is deciding what the parliament should do,” he said.
