On February 25, secretaries of the factions Arman Abovyan and Gevorg Gorgisyan stated this to journalists.
According to Arman Abovyan, it is planned to discuss and make possible decisions to resolve the situation at the meeting. The MP noted that the processes taking place in the country must be transferred to a field in which collisions and shocks would be excluded. For this reason, an extraordinary meeting will be urgently initiated within the next few hours. He called on the authorities to refrain from actions that could lead to clashes. The emerging situation, according to Abovyan, cannot but cause concern.
In turn, Gevorg Gorgisyan noted the importance of transferring the tense situation to the legal field. He added that the process of collecting signatures of lawmakers for holding an extraordinary meeting has already begun.
It should be noted that the ruling parliamentary faction "My Step" also made a political statement on February 25. In a statement, the faction expressed full support for Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, considering the political statement of separate military personnel unacceptable and considering it an attempt at a military coup. "This unconstitutional step is aimed at seizing the power of the people, upheaval in this fragile post-war situation full of external threats. Unfortunately, those who are responsible for the country's security are behaving irresponsibly. The faction is united in maintaining the stability of the state and the rule of the people'', the statement reads
