President of Armenia signed law  "On Alteration and Amendment to the  Constitutional Law of RA on Rules of Procedure of NA"

ArmInfo. President of Armenia Armen  Sarkissian signed the law "On Alteration and Amendments to the RA  Constitutional Law on the Rules of Procedure of the National  Assembly", the press service of the president reports.

To note, that this sensational law was first challenged in the  Constitutional Court. However, the other day, the CCconsidered it  constitutional. This law was introduced to the National Assembly in  October 2018, when the new authorities of Armenia tried to dissolve  the parliament and call new elections. MPs from the Republican Party,  "Prosperous Armenia" and ARF <Dashnaktsutyun>, trying to prevent it,  developed this bill, which provides not for the dissolution of  parliament in the case of various emergencies, but only a temporary  suspension of its activities.  Seeing in this initiative a threat to  their plans, the new authorities headed by Nikol Pashinyan and their  associates surrounded the National Assembly, demanding that the MPs  of these three forces abandon this legislative initiative. At night,  the MPs 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. As a result,  the law was not signed by President Armen Sarkissian, who sent it to  the Constitutional Court to review its constitutionality. Against  this background, the parliament was dissolved and new elections were  called.

Nevertheless, the other day, the Constitutional Court recognized the  law initiated by the RPA and the law passed by the three parties, and  today Armen Sarkissian signed it.
