The Bright Armenia Party was suggesting the creation of the Ministry of Internal Affairs last year, but our proposal was rejected. Today, the authorities are introducing a bill on the creation of that ministry. This is what deputy of the Bright Armenia faction of the National Assembly Karen Simonyan said during a discussion on reforms in the Police of Armenia today, adding that he welcomes the changes.

According to him, this reform will unquestionably increase the accountability of the Police to the parliament. “In addition, this reform is in line with Armenia’s international commitments. The reforms need to be implemented within the scope of transformation of the entire judiciary,” he stated.

Earlier, the representative of the Ministry of Justice had declared that a Ministry of Internal Affairs will be established within the scope of reforms in the legal system in the course of two to three years.
