Yervand Khundkaryan wasn’t elected President of the Constitutional Court since he was the only nominated candidate and didn’t garner the required number of votes. This is what judge of the Constitutional Court Edgar Shatiryan told reporters in front of the Constitutional Court today, yet failed to state how many votes Khundkaryan had received.

Khundkaryan needed to receive five votes ‘in favor’ from the nine judges of the Court.

Shatiryan also informed that new elections of the President of the Constitutional Court will be organized within the prescribed time limits. “There will obviously be new nominations. Since there is also an election of the Vice-President, this procedural session was interrupted and will resume on Monday at 11 a.m.”
