YEREVAN. – At its last plenary session, the Venice Commission has decided to consider with an urgent procedure the issue of the packages proposed in the Electoral Code of Armenia and to submit a conclusion by April 20. Vladimir Vardanyan, an MP from the majority My Step faction and chairman of the Standing Committee on State and Legal Affairs, on Wednesday told this to reporters in the National Assembly.

According to Vardanyan, the expected changes in the Electoral Code will simplify the electoral system of Armenia. "We are not talking about a new [Electoral] Code, but about certain amendments to the current [Electoral] Code, which do not complicate the electoral system, but simply try to clarify them. The electoral system will not be able to influence the registered result in any way," he added.

As per Vladimir Vardanyan, there is no pan-European consensus on which electoral system is ideal—the simple proportional representation, or the “rating” system. According to him, however, the best is the electoral system which enables counting the votes of as many citizens as possible.
