ArmInfo.As a politician, I can have my point of view on the decision of the Constitutional Court, but as the chairman of the National Assembly, I cannot dispute it. On April 22, in a conversation with journalists, the chairman of the  National Assembly, Ararat Mirzoyan, responded to the question that  the Constitutional Court had recognized the draft law "On Amendments  to the Law on the National Assembly Rules of Procedure", adopted on  October 2 by deputies from the RPA, PAP and The ARF Dashnaktsutyun,  as a result of which the ruling My Step block and its supporters,  surrounded the NA building, preventing the deputies from these 3  forces from leaving it, forcing them to abandon this legislative  initiative.

The NA Speaker noted that he may have his opinion on the decision of  the Constitutional Court, considering it to be right or wrong, but,  as a speaker of the parliament, he cannot dispute this decision. To  the clarifying question, does this mean that the representatives of  the RPA were right in the matter of the legality of this initiative,  and the new government was mistaken, Mirzoyan replied that he would  not make such conclusions.Let us remind that on October 2 the  deputies from the Republican Party of Armenia introduced the draft  law "On Amendments to the Constitutional Law of the Republic of  Armenia on the Regulations of the National Assembly" to the  parliament. The purpose of the draft law was to ensure the natural  course of the work of the RA Parliament when, due to emergency  situations or artificial obstacles, the natural course of the work of  the parliament is interrupted. 

Thus, the deputies from the RPA, the PPA and the ARFD tried in every  way to avoid the early dissolution of the parliament in the event of  its inaction, since the presented draft law only meant a temporary  suspension of the National Assembly in case of an emergency, but not  its dissolution. The adoption of such a bill was at odds with the  plans of the new authorities of Armenia, intending to dissolve the  parliament and hold early elections. Therefore, on the instructions  of Nikol Pashinyan, the people surrounded the National Assembly,  demanding from the deputies of these three forces to abandon this  legislative initiative. At night, the deputies from the three parties  were forced to stay in the NA building, and Nikol Pashinyan signed  orders to dismiss the ministers and governors from the PAP and ARFD  right on the street.Nevertheless, the other day, the Constitutional  Court recognized the law initiated by the RPA and adopted by the  three parties in compliance with the Constitution.
