YEREVAN. – We did not boycott the National Assembly (NA) sittings; we have said that now we are leaving and waiting for political and legal assessments. Edmon Marukyan, leader of the opposition Bright Armenia Party and its parliamentary faction, stated this in a conversation with journalists in the NA on Tuesday, referring to the fact that after the brawl in the legislature, the Bright Armenia faction did not take part in the parliamentary sittings, but has now returned.
"The political assessment was made immediately after my speech by the Prime Minister, who roughly said: 'We have done well, we will spread to the asphalt at the entrances!' And the legal assessment was on Saturday that the initiation of a criminal case is denied; we came after that. We wanted to see if these halls of power are ready to learn from their mistakes, to condemn the wrongdoers in themselves, and not to engage in ‘crew’ actions,” Marukyan added.
