The authorities are intolerant of alternative opinions. This is what head of the Bright Armenia faction of the National Assembly Edmon Marukyan said during a briefing today.
“We tell them they are destroying the institution of bank secrecy, they tell us we are against state interest. There are people in parliament who believe only they know what state interest means. We understand that the authorities enjoy the people’s trust, but the people have to know that the authorities are misspending their trust. Euphoria has made the authorities lose their heads. The current political majority is giving in to the temptation of having power,” Marukyan said.
