ArmInfo.On the example of Armenia, we see that the transformation of the republic from presidential to parliamentary is fraught with destabilization and major political problems. Political analyst Gleb Kuznetsov said about this to RIA Novosti, commenting on the message Bloomberg about the allegedly planned parliamentary reform in Russia.
"No one in his right mind and sober memory will consider this scenario, looking at what happened in Armenia," Kuznetsov said. According to him, parliamentary reform can be fraught with destabilization and political problems, as already shown by the experience of other countries.
It should be noted that, yesterday Bloomberg, citing two sources familiar with the situation, said that the Kremlin is considering the possibility of carrying out parliamentary reform in order for President Vladimir Putin to remain in power after the end of his term in 2024.
As explained by the agency, Putin's assistants and advisers are considering ways for the president to remain in power, for which he may need to maintain control over the State Duma.
The constitutional referendum held in Armenia on December 6, 2015, as a result of which Armenia became a parliamentary republic, in the opinion of the majority of the country's citizens, was aimed at reproducing the power of the third president of Armenia, Serzh Sargsyan. His election as prime minister after the expiration of the presidential term led to mass protests, and, ultimately, ended with a "velvet revolution."
