Andranik Kocharyan: Constitutional Court judges would ease our  state`s financial burden in case of resignation

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.
