Constitutional Court rejects appeal of RA National Assembly on  termination of powers of chairman

Constitutional Court rejects appeal of RA National Assembly on  termination of powers of chairman

ArmInfo.The Constitutional Court of Armenia at the meeting held the day before rejected the appeal of the RA National Assembly on the termination of the powers  of the Chairman of the Constitutional Court Hrayr Tovmasyan. This was  announced by the head of the Constitutional Court Edgar Ghazaryan.

According to him, the procedural decision of the Constitutional Court  will be published within the deadlines established by law.

Recall that the National Assembly of Armenia at the next meeting on  October 4 adopted the initiative of the "My Step" ruling bloc to  appeal to the Constitutional Court on early termination of the powers  of the head of the Constitutional Court Hrayr Tovmasyan. 98 deputies  voted for the adoption of the initiative, with one against. The  decision of the National Assembly was advisory in nature, since the  final word belongs to the members of the Constitutional Court. The  bill on the termination of powers of Hrayr Tovmasyan was sent to the  Speaker of the Armenian Parliament Ararat Mirzoyan on September 19.  According to the procedure, the parliament, after discussing the  issue, by secret ballot and with a 3/5 vote ratio, may decide to  appeal to the Constitutional Court to terminate the powers of its  head. However, the final decision rested with the members of the COP.  Meanwhile, on October 3, in an interview with one of the TV channels,  Hrayr Tovmasyan stated that an attempt to change the leadership of  the Constitutional Court is an attempt to neutralize his activities.  According to Tovmasyan, initiated by the My Step parliamentary  faction, the process of changing the head of the Constitutional Court  is a political decision aimed at eliminating, as he put it, the "last  braking system" in the country. "After my departure, the  Constitutional Court will become a fully puppet body in the hands of  the new government of Armenia, which will carry out political  decisions or give them a trade dress," the head of the Constitutional  Court noted. However, Tovmasyan did not see any objective reasons to  leave his post. He did not deny the existence family ties with the  close circle of the former President of Armenia Robert Kocharian, but  noted that, despite the "kindred" pressure, he "acted for the good of  the country."
