Initiative groups will get the right to hold local referenda in  Armenia

ArmInfo.. Initiative groups will get the right to hold local referenda in Armenia. At its first reading on December 6, the RA National Assembly amended the law "On  Local Referendum" and the law "On Local Self-Government".

According to the co-author of the presented document, MP Varazdat  Karapetyan, the government is on the way to enlarging the  communities. Currently, this process has affected half of all  communities, and enlargement will continue next year. The purpose of  the executive body is to enhance the capacity of local governments.  In 500 small communities, the population provides only 5-6 types of  services out of 100 approved, in enlarged ones - 30. However, the  enlargement process should take into account the opinion of local  residents. For this reason, it is proposed to hold a local  referendum, which can be initiated by a working group of 5 people.  When a government decides to enlarge a particular community, the head  of the community informs all residents of the Cabinet of Ministers.  The initiative group, having registered with the territorial election  commission, receives corresponding ballots for collecting signatures  within 30 days.  After collecting signatures, a request for financing  a local referendum is sent to the head of the community.  In turn,  the head of the community turns to the territorial election  commission and the police with a request for the amount of funding,  after which he turns to the Council of Elders with a proposal to  finance the process, after which the referendum is held within 50-60  days. The results of a local referendum are presented to the  government and the Council of Elders of local governments.
