ArmInfo.The fight against the of "Super Prime Minister System" of government and its negative manifestations is necessary. Lilith Makunts, the head of the "My Step" faction, said this in an interview with ArmInfo correspondent, answering the question of whether the profile commission on constitutional reforms will discuss the issue of a of "Super Prime Minister System" of government.
"Our struggle, with unacceptable manifestations of the of "Super Prime Minister System", is takes place every day," Makunts said.
The head of the "My Step" faction noted that the approach to constitutional reforms should be at several levels: institutional, legislative and legal. "At the same time, it is necessary to take into account the principle of distinguishing all branches of government. It seems to me that after the implementation of these reforms the role of the parliament will also increase, and this is necessary. I am sure that during discussing all the proposals for constitutional amendments, the profile group will also discuss the issue of increasing the role of the parliament," she said.
However, according to Makunts, the most important thing in this matter is the manifestation of political will. "As you know, we previously had a semi-presidential system of government according to documents, but in fact, we had the presidential system of government underlined. That is, the most important thing in this matter seems to me to be a manifestation of political will. I also think that the profile commission, discussing constitutional reforms should discuss the issue of increasing the role of the parliament, "the MP stressed.
To the remark of ArmInfo correspondent that the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan noted that the parliament does not currently use its powers to the full, and how likely it is that the next National Assembly will completely take all the levers into its own hands, Makunts noted that parliamentarians strive for this every day.
"We are gradually trying to fully use all our powers. And the results of this process are very impressive. As an example, I would like to cite cases when the parliament expresses its disagreement with some proposals of the government," the head of the faction concluded.
It should be noted that by the decision of the Prime Minister, the process of creating a profile commission on constitutional reforms has begun. This commission will consist of 15 members. The commission will include the Minister of Justice and the representative of Armenia at the European Court of Human Rights, the Ombudsman, as well as one representative from the General Meeting of Judges, six legal scholars, two representatives from public organizations and one representative from each parliamentary faction.
