ArmInfo. The ruling parliamentary bloc "My Step" has failed the sitting of the Council of the National Assembly, at which it was planned to make a decision to hold an extraordinary sitting of the National Assembly on February 26.
In a conversation with journalists, secretary of the Prosperous Armenia opposition faction Arman Abovyan noted that the current authorities of Armenia are living in a parallel world. They are unable to soberly assess the situation in the country. He refused to comment on the invitation of the head of the Armenian government to dialogue with all the political forces of the country, since, according to the lawmaker, all statements of the representatives of the authorities are mutually exclusive. "There is no desire to understand the logic of their actions," Arman Abovyan stressed.
The problem, he said, is that today the authorities have once again demonstrated that they ignore the most important institution of power - the National Assembly. In fact, they have resorted to the tactics of political boycotts if issues are not on their agenda. He informed that not only the leadership of the National Assembly, but also the members of the Council did not come to the sitting of the Council. Thus, the authorities once again prove that they themselves are straining the situation. "We are doing everything possible to prevent collisions, and to prevent this from happening, it is necessary to transfer the ongoing processes into a normal, understandable field. The authorities have dropped out of an understandable field," Arman Abovyan stated.
He added that now we are talking about the current situation. For the second day, the opposition parliamentary factions, using all constitutional opportunities, have been taking steps to reduce the level of tension to a minimum level using the capabilities of the National Assembly. The MP expressed regret at the statements of the authorities, and in particular of the RA Prime Minister, about the attempted coup d'etat. "They do not even know how such attempts occur, and do not want to get acquainted with the experience of other states on this issue. Meanwhile, the statement of the military says everything clearly. Attempts to constantly look for the culprits and turn the situation upside down lead to dire consequences. Today we are living in the midst of a grave crisis " To note, that today at 11.00am on the initiative of the opposition factions "Prosperous Armenia" and "Bright Armenia" a sitting of the NA Council was to be held, at which a decision was to be made to hold an extraordinary sitting of the parliament at 4.00pm with one issue - the abolition of martial law.
