Armenian parliament committees may receive $ 12 thousand aid from the UN for the implementation of technical equipment to improve the quality and efficiency of their performance, Prosperous Armenia Party MP Naira Zohrabyan said on Monday during the Standing Committee on Protection of Human Rights and Public Affairs sitting.
Parliament's committees need to present one representative from each parliamentary faction.
My Step ruling bloc MP Maria Karapetyan, in turn, suggested that their committee use part of the funds to attract a lawyer to help a working group that is considering fighting the violence propaganda.
Another My Step MP Rustam Bakoyan proposed to conduct field studies on the observance of the rights of women and girls in the Yezidi communities of Armenia.
The MPs gave a positive conclusion after some discussions.
