Edmon Marukyan: There will be no extraordinary meeting of the  National Assembly

ArmInfo. The Council of the National  Assembly today rejected the request of the Enlightened Armenia Party  to convene an extraordinary meeting. On May 22, Edmond Marukyan, head  of the "Enlightened Armenia" party, told reporters.

"An extraordinary meeting will not be. Bad traditions are being  formed, the collection of signatures was carried out, the text of the  statement was, however, we cannot convene a meeting," he noted.  The  deputy stated that during the meeting of the Council, deputies from  the My Step faction voiced the opinion that the majority of the  people's representatives supported the action to block the judges on  that day, therefore, their position is already clear and washed away  the meeting.  Following the call of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan to  block the entrances and exits to the courts, the Enlightened Armenia  Party initiated the extraordinary sitting of the National Assembly to  discuss the current situation in the country. To this end, she  organized a collection of signatures. We managed to collect 36  signatures. Deputies from the Prosperous Armenia Party also joined  the collection of signatures.  They came up with a draft statement,  which, in particular, noted: "Taking part 3 of Article 88 of the  Constitution of the Republic of Armenia as the basis, using its  constitutional authority to exercise parliamentary control, the  National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia calls upon faithful to  the Constitution and the legislation of the Republic of Armenia,  respect international obligations enshrined in ratified international  documents. " The document also calls to ensure the protection of  human rights, democracy, the rule of law.
