ArmInfo.Conducting early parliamentary elections in Armenia in the interests of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan himself. Director of the Analytical Center on Globalization and Regional Cooperation Stepan Grigoryan expressed a similar opinion to ArmInfo.
"The fact is that it's simply impossible to deal with his ministers based on the majority in parliament, it is impossible to talk. They simply answer to any argument that they have the majority of seats in parliament, and accordingly, the society has given them a mandate for the activity that they are leading. It seems to me that this state of affairs poses a serious danger to the Prime Minister personally, "he stressed.
In this sense, the political analyst does not doubt the expediency of holding early parliamentary elections. Remaining a supporter of the Pashinyan's majority in parliament, Grigoryan considers the situation where two-thirds of the mandates held by the My Step bloc unacceptable. According to him, the predominance, albeit of a legitimate, but one force in parliament, automatically becomes a problem for the government itself, for the leader of this majority.
The political analyst is convinced that the possession of 70% of the seats in parliament is by no means a necessary condition for the ruling party in a parliamentary system of government. "My step", according to his estimates, can quite effectively rule the country, having 35% and being in a coalition with another political force. In his opinion, moreover, it is precisely these 70% that impede the work of the government, since voices and criticisms of the small opposition in the parliament are simply not heard. Accordingly, there is no opportunity for discussion.
"In the end, we need to return to the agenda of the time of the revolution. Demanding to "Reject Serzh" our society sought to get rid of not only him and his entourage. The society demanded to get rid of the Constitution, the shameful Electoral Code, other laws. All this continues Remain relevant today, the need to reform the main acts regulating the state's activities has not gone away. In this light, the Pashinyan's government has a lot to do, " Grigoryan concluded.
