The Armenian parliament in the first reading made amendments to the  law "On local self-government in the city of Yerevan"

ArmInfo. The National Assembly of Armenia made amendments to the law "On local  self-government in the city of Yerevan" on September 13 at the first reading.

According to the First Deputy Minister of Territorial Administration  and Development of Armenia Vache Terteryan, the document submitted by  the government proceeds from the requirements of the new  Constitution. It streamlines the relationship between the Council of  Elders and the capital's mayor. One of the innovations of the new  legislative act was the introduction of a provision according to  which certain factions of the Yerevan Elders Council will no longer  have the opportunity to submit a referendum issue, which caused a  sharp negative reaction of the opposition faction "Elk" ("Exit"). 

This right will be reserved for the mayor of Yerevan and 1/3 of the  members of the Council of Elders. We should note, however, that the  factions of the Council of Elders of the capital's municipality had  such a right since 2009, but they never took advantage of this right.
