ArmInfo. The judges of the Constitutional Court did not understand that after the revolution the situation in Armenia had changed. MP from the My Step bloc, head of the parliamentary Standing Committee on Defense and Security Andranik Kocharyan announced this on February 28 in an interview with reporters.
He noted that the people of Armenia have certain expectations from the judicial system. "Do you think the referendum on constitutional amendments is not an important problem for our country? Only the judges of the Constitutional Court didn't realize this, because the judges of the Constitutional Court would ease our state's huge financial burden in case of voluntary resignation. They don't even have a political scent, they didn't understand that the country had changed, and that our people had different expectations from the judiciary, "the MP concluded.
It should be noted that yesterday, on February 27, none of the judges of the Constitutional Court filed an application for early retirement. To recall, at an extraordinary meeting of the National Assembly of Armenia on February 6, the MPs voted for the issue of the need to adopt amendments to the Constitution, providing for the termination of the powers of the chairman and members of the Constitutional Court for a referendum. We are talking about article 213 of the Constitution governing the tenure of members and the chairman of the Constitutional Court. The adoption of the amendments will allow the resignation of the current composition of the Constitutional Court.
