ArmInfo.Due to the fact that we do not agree with the position of the authorities in the referendum, persecution began against us. This was announced on February 14 during a briefing at the National Assembly of Armenia by the head of the Enlightened Armenia faction Edmond Marukyan.
He noted that everyone who does not agree with the point of view of the authorities is immediately labeled. "They immediately begin to say that this person is corrupt, is a representative of the interests of the previous regime, etc. After all, in fact, there were no significant contradictions or quarrels between us, we simply did not agree with them on the issue of holding a referendum," stressed the deputy.
Marukyan stated that the policy of dividing the society into "blacks" and "whites" continues. "I don't like the fact that hate propaganda is very active in the country. I believe that labeling another person is very low only because their positions diverge," he said.
The head of the PA also emphasized that constant statements that people are trying to take away the achievements of the revolution are not true. "The achievements of the revolution belong to the people, and no one can take them away. But constantly calling people to the streets if something goes wrong you want is simply absurd. Some kind of kindergarten," the deputy said.
It should be noted that on February 6, the parliament decided on a referendum, at which the citizens of Armenia will decide whether they agree to amend the Constitution of the country. On April 5, a constitutional referendum will be held in Armenia, at which the issue of judges of the Constitutional Court will be decided. Many deputies (including those from the Enlightened Armenia - Ed. Party) and human rights activists said that this decision was unconstitutional, since initially the deputies had to send their proposal to the Constitutional Court.
According to the decision adopted on February 11 at the CEC meeting, the campaign will be held from February 17 to April 3.
