ArmInfo. The ruling "My Step" faction in Armenia will not obstruct the activities of the commission to investigate the actions of the authorities during the coronavirus epidemic, created by force of law. On September 16, the head of the faction Lilit Makunts stated this at the RA National Assembly.
According to her, in Armenia, as in the whole world, the consequences of the coronavirus have not yet been overcome. Moreover, today many leading scientists and doctors are trying to find ways to combat COVID- 19 in order to offer the most effective protective measures that will make it possible to protect the population from infection. For this reason, Lilit Makunts continued, the motives for creating the commission at this stage are not clear. Obviously, her work will not bring tangible results. Nevertheless, the faction will not interfere with the work of the commission, and will represent its deputies who will be involved in its work.
It should be noted that the National Assembly with 110 votes in favor and 5 abstentions (against 0) at the sitting on September 16 approved the quantitative composition of the commission.
Recall that in the Armenian parliament, by force of law, an inquiry commission was created to investigate the actions of the authorities during the period of the coronavirus epidemic. According to the author of the initiative, the head of the "Enlightened Armenia" faction Edmond Marukyan, the commission was created with the consent of 1/4 of the deputy corps. The commission will investigate the effectiveness of government measures to prevent COVID-19, mitigate the consequences of coronavirus, and maintain the rights and freedoms of citizens in a state of emergency. According to Edmon Marukyan, the commission was created by force of law, and this issue is not being discussed. Only the number of members of the commission is subject to discussion. The members of the initiative group believe that the new structure should include 12 members - 7 from the ruling My Step faction, 3 from the Prosperous Armenia faction and 2 from the Enlightened Armenia faction.
