Democracy simply does not exist without the rule of law, and the established prosecutorial system is the guarantee of legitimacy and, consequently, the establishment of that democracy. Anna Vardapetyan, Assistant to the Prime Minister and the only candidate for the post of new Prosecutor General, said this at Wednesday’s National Assembly (NA) special session debates on the matter of electing the new Prosecutor General of Armenia.
Vardapetyan considered the use of her knowledge as one of the goals of her work as the Prosecutor General. According to the candidate, this will contribute to the formation of a state governed by the rule of law, which, in turn, will enable establishing a true democracy in Armenia.
"I am currently conducting research, and I will present, in the near future, my vision for reform in the prosecutorial system [in Armenia]," said the candidate for the post of Prosecutor General.
The opposition claims that being the PM's assistant, Anna Vardapetyan is, in fact, a member of the ruling team. The parliamentary opposition itself, however, did not attend the special session of the NA and continues to boycott its activities.
