ArmInfo. In the near future, a bill on reform of the electoral system will be presented to the public. This was announced on October 18 at the parliamentary hearings on amendments to the constitutional law "On Parties", lawyer Armen Mazmanyan, who took an active part in the development of the draft document, said.
According to him, one of the most important details of this reform is the financing of political parties, the reduction of corruption risks, as well as the separation of party activities and business. In particular, it was decided to register the party with at least 300 members against 800 at present.
Moreover, the representation of parties in the country's regions should not be less than one quarter. Parties will now be banned from doing business.
To recall, on the initiative of the Speaker of the Armenian Parliament Ararat Mirzoyan, on October 18, hearings on the draft amendments to the constitutional law "On Parties" started in the National Assembly of Armenia.
