Candidate for the Prosecutor General of Armenia, Anna Vardapetyan, has always stood out in the field of law with revolutionary views. Vladimir Vardanyan, a member of the ruling majority "Civil Contract" Faction in the National Assembly (NA) and Chairman of the NA Standing Committee on State and Legal Affairs, stated this at Wednesday’s NA special session debates on the matter of electing the new Prosecutor General of Armenia.

Noting that he has known Vardapetyan for a long time, the MP stressed that she has always stood out with her good manners and determination.

Vardanyan is convinced that the current candidate has high qualifications, and all the necessary qualifications for the position of Prosecutor General of Armenia.

"For the first time in Armenia, a woman is running for the post of Prosecutor General. I am convinced that Vardapetyan can become the symbol and the new image of the Prosecutor General's Office, which, first of all, is called to ensure the restoration of rights and demand a fair court," the lawmaker said.

Vardanyan added that Anna Vardapetyan's principledness, adherence to the principles of democracy and the rule of law, as well as her professional skills and knowledge will contribute to the prosecutorial reforms in Armenia.

As reported earlier, 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.
