ArmInfo. A absurd situation has developed around the candidates in the judge of the Courtation Court of Armenia.
This was announced on March 5 at a meeting with journalists, the leader of the opposition party "Enlightened Armenia" and the same name of the Armenian parliament of the Armenian Parliament, Edmond Maugony, commenting on the situation with the election of the judge of the Cassation Court. Recall that on the eve of after three days of discussion as a result of a secret ballot in parliament, none of the three candidates for Judge CC - Samvel Grigoryan, Armen Aikianz and Arsen Mkrtchyan - did not receive the necessary number of votes. The head of the "My step" faction, Lilith Makunts noted that the deputies of the faction will not be elected members of the Court of Cassation, nominated by the Chairman of the Supreme Judicial Council by Ruben Vardazaryan. According to her, "my step" relates to the judges- promoters with deep respect, but taking into account the circumstances that Ruben Vardazaryan nominated them, the deputies will not support them. "Thereby we express our position to him, and not to the candidates," said Makunz. According to her, the stumbling block was the statement of Vardazaryan from November 15, where he called on his colleagues to show who they were honest professionals, or "just whining in the gentlemen." During the debate, the deputies asked Vardazaryan to explain what they mean his words, because the judges are not entitled to make political statements. "Vardasaryan's explanations were not exhaustive and confirmed our concern that Mr. Vardasaryan politicizes the judicial system," said Makunts.
Meanwhile, as Edmond Marukyan believes if the ruling majority has problems with the Chairman of the WCC, they must solve them in a separate manner. But professionals, ready to fulfill their mission in the cassation court, should not suffer. "And all this happens in the country in which it is impossible to be so inefficient to spend the entire state resource, when, according to the results of three days of discussions in parliament, we actually encountered a boycott from the ruling strength, "the deputy noted. He added that the head of the CC was never his hero, but he was never It was nominated just ruling power, expecting that he will fulfill its orders. "Power is dishonest in this matter. What do we want to have a truly independent judicial system or the owl of the authorities? "- asked a deputy's question. He noted that all over the world there is an interesting indicator: if the government criticizes the judiciary, this means that the judiciary works well. ARUs sent his behavior to the international community that works efficiently.
