ArmInfo. The head of the Bright Armenia faction Edmon Marukyan touched on the issue related to the Constitutional Court. Marukyan touched on this topic on his page on the Facebook social network.
In his post Marukyan, in particular, noted: "Pyrrhic victory" of the authorities over the Constitutional Court is, to put it mildly, a legally vulnerable process. We have talked about this many times, and now we are completing the preparation of our application for sending to the Constitutional Court.
Another legally vulnerable process is the campaign launched against the "former" authorities, the whole essence of which was to postpone the day of consideration of the case of the second president of Armenia in the Constitutional Court>.
The lawmaker also spoke about the faction's position on this issue. <Why did someone decide that our party should "fit" in the army of representatives of "blacks" or "whites". Light is not black or white. Many people do not see their future in these two camps, which are obsessed with annihilating each other.
We are aware that our path is very difficult, and we realize that many will not understand why we decided to go this route. Those forces will not understand us who remember the need for cooperation only when they don't like something>, Marukyan emphasized. He also said that representatives of the two political camps blinded by hatred do not see that many people do not support either one or the other. <And we have voiced the words and thoughts of hundreds of our fellow citizens, and we always will. Life does not end, and time will show that immoral political merit is temporary, and moral merit is long-term. Recall that we note that the forecasts of "Bright Armenia> tend to become reality>," Edmon Marukyan concluded.
It should be noted that on June 24, Armenian President Armen Sarkissian signed a package of bills, including those related to amendments to the law on the Constitutional Court. The relevant amendments were approved by the National Assembly at an extraordinary meeting on June 22. According to the amendments, the powers of the judges of the Constitutional Court Felix Tokhyan, Hrant Nazarian and Alvina Gyulumyan, who had been in office for more than 12 years, were terminated. Already former head of the Constitutional Court Hrayr Tovmasyan will continue to work as a judge. The chairman and deputy chairman of the Constitutional Court will be elected after the approval of the full composition of the Constitutional Court (9 judges). At the same time, the current composition of 6 judges is sufficient for the legality of the convened meetings, that is, the continuity of the activities of the Constitutional Court will not be interrupted. According to the law, in the absence of the chairman and deputy chairman of the Constitutional Court, the powers of the chairman are temporarily performed by the oldest judge, that is, Ashot Khachatryan.
To recall, on June 26, representatives of the Prosperous Armenia faction appealed to the Constitutional Court of the country, disputing the law on constitutional amendments adopted by the ruling faction My Step. Representatives of the Bright Armenia faction promised to join them, after the Constitutional Court decided on the case of the second President of Armenia Robert Kocharian.
