ArmInfo.The well-being and safety of citizens during rallies is the only concern of the  authorities of the country. This was stated by the First Deputy Minister of Justice of the Republic of Armenia Artur Hovhannisyan, who presented the amendments to the Law on Freedom of Assembly adopted by the National Assembly on September 13 in the first reading.

As noted by Artur Hovhannisyan, the bill is brought into line with  the provisions of the updated Constitution of the country. In  particular, in. The main law stipulates cases of the possibility of  restrictions in holding rallies, which from now on will also be  reflected in the draft law submitted by the government.  Moreover,  the issues of ensuring state security in holding rallies, preventing  crimes, maintaining public order, protecting the rights and freedoms  of other citizens become a prevailing factor over freedom of  assembly. Under the bill, rallies can be limited to respecting rights  and freedoms in a democratic society, where constitutional rights and  freedoms prevail over the freedom of assembly. In the current  version, limiting the rallies does not mention the civil rights of  the society.

 The assessment is given purely legal: observance of the rights and  freedoms of other citizens. The second change concerns the powers of  state bodies in holding rallies. The Constitution refers to judges,  prosecutors, investigators, etc., while the law "On Freedom of  Assembly" gives general wording. Now the provision of the law is  brought in line with the requirements of the Basic Law. At the same  time, the military will still not be able to participate in rallies  in military uniform, they must replace it with civilian ammunition  while maintaining politically neutral behavior.
