During a briefing at the National Assembly today, Deputy Speaker Alen Simonyan said the statements by the Republican Party of Armenia to not participate in the referendum for constitutional amendments serve as yet another reason for the public to show active participation in the referendum.
He stated that those statements aren’t weighty on the political agenda and are pointless. “It’s clear that there are some political forces that are trying to sabotage the process and impede the implementation of reforms,” Simonyan said.
The holding of a referendum for constitutional amendments implies termination of the powers of President of the Constitutional Court Hrayr Tovmasyan and six members of the Court. The referendum is set to take place on April 5, and the campaign will kick off on February 17.
