YEREVAN. – Hraparak daily of Armenia writes: As it is known, the CC [i.e., the ruling majority “Civil Contract” Faction in the National Assembly] deprived, in a special session yesterday, opposition MPs Vahe Hakobyan and Ishkhan Saghatelyan of [their parliamentary administrative] positions.

As soon as the session started, a protest started in front of the parliament building, and within minutes, a large number of police troops were brought.

According to our information, it was due to the tense situation nearby the parliament that the matter of the opposition [MPs] was resolved hurriedly—in an hour. Two MPs from the CC presented the justifications of the [respective] draft, and no one asked any questions, did not make a speech. The dismissal of the [aforesaid] opposition [MPs] took place in a gloomy and unhappy atmosphere, without performances—as if it were a funeral.

Meanwhile, according to some information, in the initial scenario, the authorities were to make a show and "knocked" the opposition. To our question, "Did you get afraid of the wave of protests?" CC MP Vahagn Aleksanyan taunted: "From ten people?"
