ArmInfo. It is clear that the current composition of the Constitutional Court is incapable of administering constitutional justice; another thing is what will happen after its dissolution. Secretary of the executive body of the Citizen's Decision party Suren Sahakyan expressed a similar opinion to ArmInfo.
"In this regard, we formulated and presented to our colleagues from the ruling "Civil Contract" party seven questions, the answers to which we expect to receive until March 20. We expect that they will give the answer to the main question - "why should citizens say "Yes" or "No" to the Constitution?. "We, in particular, are interested in the future of the Constitutional Court as an institution," he said. Sahakyan noted that "Citizen's Decision" does not consider the current Constitution, adopted through fraud, as legitimate. However, at the same time it allows its use by the authorities as a road map, given the absence of other legitimate documents, and the presence of Nikol Pashinyan as the only legitimate phenomenon in the country.
The further position of the "Citizen's Decision" party regarding the issue of participation in the constitutional referendum planned for April 5 depends on the response of the Civil Contract party. However, according to Sahakyan, his party will not be in the "No" camp, in any case. If colleagues from the ruling party present comprehensive answers to the above questions, the party is ready to vote "Yes." Sahakyan is convinced that the judges of the Constitutional Court should have authority in their field and it is not at all necessary that they never have any relation to politics. The politician determines the political neutrality of any judge by the degree of public confidence in his impartiality. "The impartiality and competence of the same Vahe Grigoryan, who has repeatedly made political statements, does not raise questions for me personally," Sahakyan summed up.
On February 10, Armenian President Armen Sarkissian signed a decree on holding a referendum on constitutional amendments on April 5. Earlier, at an extraordinary sitting of the National Assembly of Armenia on February 6, theMPs voted "for" the issue of the need to adopt amendments to the Constitution, providing for the termination of the powers of the head 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 head of the Constitutional Court. The adoption of the amendments will allow the resignation of the current composition of the Constitutional Court.
