ArmInfo. Parliament this week resolved the crisis in the Constitutional Court. Armenia's Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated this from the rostrum of the Parliament.
"The fact that new judges of the Constitutional Court were elected in parliament this week is very important, but this does not mean that now an ideal Constitutional Court has been formed in the country. As you know, the government, after lengthy discussions, nominated Edgar Shatiryan, I think this decision will be justified, "the Prime Minister emphasized.
To note, on September 15 the Armenian parliament elected three judges of the Constitutional Court. Edgar Shatiryan, Yervand Khundkaryan and Artur Vagharshyan. To note, the opposition parliamentary factions of the Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP) and the Bright Armenia refused to take part in the voting procedure, thereby declaring a boycott. Formally, this decision was made due to the fact that none of the candidates wanted to meet with the opposition, which, in turn, did not ask any of them about it. Moreover, the representatives of the PAP considered the entire procedure initiated by the ruling party around the Constitutional Court not constitutional.
