Yervand Khundkaryan elected as a candidate for a judge of  Constitutional Court

ArmInfo. Yervand Khundkaryan  was  elected as a candidate for a judge of the Constitutional Court. The  corresponding decision was made following the results of the General  Meeting of Judges, which took place behind closed doors.

The chairman of the Court of Cassation Yervand Khundkaryan and the  chairman of the court of general jurisdiction of the first instance  of Tavush region Arman Kyureghyan nominated their candidatures for  the vacant position of the judge of the Constitutional Court. By  another decision of the meeting of judges, the judge of the Civil  Court of Cassation Stepan Mikaelyan was elected a member of the  Supreme Judicial Council.

To add, Khundkaryan's candidacy must be submitted for parliamentary  approval. Earlier, the Government of Armenia nominated Vahram  Nersisyan as its candidate for the position of judge of the  Constitutional Court. The President of Armenia must also present his  candidate.

Earlier, Speaker of the Armenian Parliament Ararat Mirzoyan signed  amendments to the law "On the Constitutional Court", which was  adopted on June 30. In accordance with them, the powers of all judges  of the Constitutional Court are limited to 12 years. After the  adoption of the amendments, three judges who had worked for over 12  years were dismissed from their posts: Alvina Gyulumyan, Hrant  Nazaryan and Felix Tokhyan. The chairman of the court, Hrayr  Tovmasyan, has become an ordinary judge. New judges will now be  elected instead. One candidate is proposed by the government, the  second - by the president, the third - by the General Meeting of  Judges.
