Political initiative  urged President  to support judicial reform  in Armenia

ArmInfo. Today, the "In the Name of  the Republic" political initiative  held a rally at the Presidential Administration. Members of the initiative urge Armenian President  Armen Sarkissian to nominate one of the three judges of the  Constitutional Court.

As the ArmInfo correspondent reports from the scene, the members of  the initiative submitted a petition to the presidential  administration with this call.

It should be noted that this initiative is led by independent MP  Arman Babajanyan. In an interview with reporters, he said that as of   today the president has responsibilities; Sarkissian through his  actions should contribute to the reform of the judicial system of  Armenia. The MP noted that the state had a huge chance to change the  judicial system in the country, and if the President does not use it,  it will be a huge loss.

<I voted for judge of the Constitutional Court Vahe Grigoryan and I  want the latter to attend the sessions of the Constitutional Court.  We are sure that only such a politician as you is aware of the full  degree of responsibility in this matter>, Babajanyan emphasized.

It should be noted that in June the parliament adopted amendments to  the Constitution, according to which the powers of three judges were  terminated, the term of office in this position was 12 or more years.  These judges were Feliks Tokhyan, Alvina Gyulumyan and Hrant  Nazaryan. In turn,  head of the Constitutional Court, Hrayr  Tovmasyan, lost his post of CC's President. According to the  Constitution, the President, then the government and, finally, the  General Meeting of Judges should nominate one candidate for the  position of judge of the Constitutional Court. The full formation of  the composition of the CC should occur within two months.
