YEREVAN. – Past daily of Armenia writes: According to the authorities, the constitutional amendments adopted by the ruling faction in the NA [National Assembly] on June 22 came into force on June 26.
According to that, the powers of three CC [Constitutional Court judges—Felix Tokhyan, Alvina Gyulumyan, and Hrant Khachatryan—are terminated, whereas CC President Hrayr Tovmasyan continues to serve only as a CC judge, although everything is not so simple and clear yet, to put it mildly.
According to Past newspaper’s information, the authorities are in such a hurry on the matter of "appointing" their own CC judges that they will not wait for the [respective] two months provided by law.

According to our source, it is not ruled out that they [the authorities] will call a special [session of parliament] during this very week.
