According to Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, after the non-violent velvet revolution in Armenia in 2018, democracy has truly become a reality in the country. He said about this when speaking at the Copenhagen Democracy Summit 2024 and attending the discussion entitled "From the frontline: Armenia’s defence of democracy."...

In his address, the premier considered it good news that democracy has truly become a reality in Armenia.

But what has changed with real democracy for the citizens of Armenia? Before the velvet revolution of 2018, widespread electoral fraud was the usual companion of elections in the country. There was no confidence among the citizens that there was a real opportunity for them to elect and form a parliament and a government. But now the situation is completely different. Citizens know that they are powerful enough to decide, said the premier, adding that the two general elections held in Armenia after the velvet revolution in 2018 were recognized by both the Armenian society and the international community as democratic, free, and competitive.

The PM noted that Armenia has made huge progress in strengthening its democratic institutions, which is very well reflected in the democracy indicators of various prestigious international organizations.
