The President himself was in favor of constitutional amendments and increasing the powers of the President. Arsen Torosyan, an MP of the ruling majority “Civil Contract” Faction at the National Assembly (NA) of Armenia, told this to reporters in the NA Monday, referring to the views that the reason for President Armen Sarkissian's resignation may be the expected constitutional amendments as a result of which he may be left out of the “game.”

"There was no mutual understanding between the President and the government on this issue. We [i.e., the ruling force] believe that the parliamentary model [of government] is more democratic, it enables keeping the country more stable in crisis situations. There are no discussions on returning to the presidential model on our agenda, and I do not think there will be. Therefore, I do not think that the President's resignation has anything to do with the expected or being discussed constitutional amendments," Torosyan said.
