It is necessary to refrain from referring to political subtexts. The Commission for the Prevention of Corruption of Armenia is an independent body, and its opinions are given through a certain procedure that is followed by a certain procedure which we all need to undergo. This is what leader of the My Step faction of the National Assembly of Armenia Lilit Makunts told reporters in parliament today, touching upon the fact that the Commission for the Prevention of Corruption is considering the issue of stripping Gagik Tsarukyan of his mandate since the latter has violated the prescribed rule and been involved with entrepreneurship.
When told that the Ministry of Justice is the one that addressed the Commission with the request, Makunts told the reporters to ask the Ministry of Justice why it has addressed the Commission since the My Step faction has nothing to do with the process and will respond when the issue is discussed in parliament.
As for the fact that the President of Armenia nominated Artur Vagharshyan judge of the Constitutional Court for the second time, Makunts said the following: “The President has the right to nominate any candidate and do it several times. I don’t see a problem with that.”
