YEREVAN. – Hraparak daily of Armenia writes: Yesterday, a heated discussion took place at the [parliamentary opposition] "Armenia" Faction on whether to return to the parliament or not. The faction decided to participate in the [National Assembly (NA)] sessions again, especially after the [other parliamentary opposition] "With Honor" Faction "opened the way" last week; they had attended the NA vote.
Let's remind that the basis for stripping the [parliamentary] mandates [of the opposition] is the absence of more than half of the votes. The sentiments at "Armenia" [Faction] are unchanged: those who were in favor of going to the parliament from the beginning insisted that it is pointless not to participate in the sessions; those who were against it, insisted on theirs. A joint decision was not adopted, or rather, they decided: whoever considers that participation is the right thing, let him participate, whoever doesn't, may not go to the parliament. In fact, the opposition ranks will no longer be empty during the four-day [session] starting next week.
