The elections will be effective through the proportional electoral system, if, of course, they managed to make the amendments to the Electoral Code. This is what deputy of the National Assembly of Armenia Sofia Hovsepyan told reporters in parliament today.
“I believe the authorities won’t manage to make the amendments because the law has just been introduced for consideration. There are quite a lot of problematic provisions that need to be amended. If the amendments are made, fine, but going to elections with the current version will be more than problematic. There was also a proposal to hold elections through a rotation procedure, meaning if a particular deputy doesn’t meet voters’ expectations, he or she can be replaced with another candidate after two years. There is a small chance that the authorities will manage to amend the Electoral Code, and the elections must just be held through the rating system,” she said.
During today’s question-and-answer session with government officials in parliament, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan declared that the elections will be held through the proportional electoral system.
