The President of Armenia will appeal to the Constitutional Court to  determine the conformity of the Constitution with the law on amending  and supplementing the law on the parliamentary rules.

ArmInfo. Armenian President Armen Sargsyan will appeal to the Constitutional Court to determine the compliance of the Constitution with the law on amending and  supplementing the law "On Parliamentary Regulations".

The presidential statement on this subject, in particular, states:  "All laws must comply with the Constitution and serve their goals.  The National Assembly adopted on October 2 a law amending and  supplementing the law On Parliamentary Regulations", which became the  cause of public debate and misinterpretation. Part of the society  negatively perceived the document. Remaining committed to my  position, I instructed my staff to study in detail the international  experience on this issue, as well as the rationale for this draft  law.  Conducted studies indicate certain constitutional issues. With  this in mind, and in order to ensure the supremacy of the  Constitution, I intend to contact the Constitutional Court to  determine whether this document conforms to the Constitution. "

It should be noted that the government of Armenia believes that this  document is aimed at complicating the procedure for the dissolution  of parliament and, as a result torpedoing early elections by the  former ruling party and its supporters.
