YEREVAN. – I do not know what information Hrayr Tovmasyan has and from where, but right now we are discussing Yervand Khundkaryan's candidacy. Vahe Grigoryan, a judge of the Constitutional Court of Armenia, on Friday told this to reporters outside the Court—and referring to the reporters' remark that Tovmasyan says that he has information that the political circles may nominate a new candidate for president of the Constitutional Court.

When asked how he feel about Khundkaryan's candidacy, Grigoryan answered: "I think we need a new candidate."

It is already the third day in the Constitutional Court that its judges are in the process of electing a president of the Court.
