“We inform you that the adoption of the Constitution of Armenia with “reforms” in 2015, that is, the result and lawfulness of the popular referendum, are still questioned by the public at large, as well as several political parties, non-governmental organizations and average citizens of Armenia. This is stated in the application that several political parties, non-governmental organizations, intelligentsia and public figures have addressed to the Prosecutor General’s Office, investigative services and the National Security Service.
“In particular, the several statements that Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan has made about the unlawfulness of the Constitution of Armenia with “reforms” in 2015 have deepened the conviction of the Armenian public that the Constitution of 2015 is unlawful. The Constitution of Armenia of 2015 is incompatible with the principles of the Declaration of Independence of Armenia and unlawful. The Constitution was adopted through procedural violations and fraud.
To show the truth, we are addressing you to institute a case on the suspicion of the aforementioned and lead an investigation to open the archived ballot boxes and recount the ballots. To open the archived ballot boxes for the constitutional referendum of 2015 and recount the ballots, we propose to set up a committee that will comprise representatives of as many civic and political organizations as possible so that the process is open, transparent and instills confidence,” the authors of the statement stated.
