NA factions: Pashinyan and parliamentary majority serving him must  resign immediately

NA factions: Pashinyan and parliamentary majority serving him must  resign immediately

ArmInfo.Nikol Pashinyan and the parliamentary majority serving him have lost their political  legitimacy and must resign immediately. Their further activities only deepen the civil confrontation within the country and discredit Armenia's reputation and recognition in international relations. This is stated in a joint statement by the "Armenia" and "I have honor" opposition factions of the National Assembly of the Republic of  Armenia.

As noted in the statement, Nikol Pashinyan and his political team  bear direct political, moral and criminal responsibility for the  recent days developments, essentially turning into anti-people and  anti-national political elements serving the interests of foreign  powers, primarily Turkiye and Azerbaijan. "It is obvious that all the  tragic events of the recent period of our people's history are  directly related to the activities of Nikol Pashinyan and his inner  circle (March 1, 2008, seizure of power in 2018, 44-day war,  occupation of the sovereign territory of Armenia by Azerbaijan, loss  of Nagorno-Karabakh). It is time to stop this process and continue  the dignified process without Nikol and his majority. This has  already become an ontological necessity for our people. The facts  prove that over the past six years, the one-man rule of Nikol  Pashinyan has been formed in the country, which has nothing to do  with the fundamental norms of the Constitution, human rights and  democracy. A small group of people calling themselves the majority,  blackmailing society with new threats of war, holds the Armenian  state hostage for the sake of their own security and enrichment. The  confessions of the leader of the regime Nikol Pashinyan prove that  over the past six years he has been manipulating public opinion,  misleading the population, serving other interests, strengthening the  material well-being of his family and relatives,"  the statement  notes.  Its authors emphasize that during the six years of its rule,  the ruling political force has increased the country's national debt  by six billion dollars, corruption has increased, and the entire  state security system has been destroyed. The policies and actions of  the current rulers contradict the Constitution of Armenia and  threaten the constitutional order.

"The aggressiveness of the authorities, the use of force against  peaceful protesters, the transformation of the National Assembly into  a militarized facility are a manifestation of agony and the desire to  postpone as much as possible the moment of criminal responsibility  for the crimes they have committed. Today, Armenia has become a  police state, where law enforcement agencies do not perform the  functions of maintaining public order and respecting fundamental  human rights and freedoms, but only protect the leader of the regime  and his inner circle. The fact that the police do not serve the  society is evidenced by the annual increase in the number of serious  and especially serious crimes in the country. The judicial and legal  system has become an appendage of the political regime and has  completely lost its independence and objectivity. After the events on  Baghramyan Avenue on June 12, 2024, the Human Rights Defender, the  President of the Supreme Judicial Council and the Chief Prosecutor  should resign immediately, because they failed to prevent massive  violations of human rights. and failed to ensure the rule of law. The  incident on Baghramyan Avenue on June 12 became the <red> line which  outlawed the authorities. 

We believe that all police officers, investigators, prosecutors and  judges who commit illegal actions bear personal responsibility for  their actions and decisions. They will be viewed as supporters of  Pashinyan's anti-people and anti-state regime, justifying cruel and  illegal actions against peaceful protesters. All political forces and  non-governmental organizations that consider themselves part of  modern Armenian society and are ready to fight for freedom and  justice must express their clear attitude towards the events of June  12. Otherwise, we see that they are equally responsible for the  policies of the Pashinyan regime, are in solidarity with it and  strengthen it with their actions, "the statement says. The document  also calls on the international community to condemn the actions of  the Armenian authorities. Otherwise, double standards will be  obvious, that the agenda of cooperation with the international  community on human rights, democracy and the rule of law has  exhausted itself and is of an exclusively geopolitical expediency  nature serving the interests of the Pashinyan regime. "We call on  PACE to remove the issue of Armenia's fulfillment of its obligations  from the agenda of the June session, since the prepared materials are  not objective, do not reflect the real state of human rights and the  quality of democracy in the country. The continued biased attitude of  the Council of Europe is a real violation of human rights, democracy  and the rule of law in Armenia. Considering that under the current  government it is impossible to achieve an objective and fair legal  assessment of the activities of the heads of law enforcement agencies  (the Minister of Internal Affairs, the Chief of Police, the Director  of the National Security Service, the heads of investigative  committees) , we suggest that they resign voluntarily. Failure to  comply with this call will be considered an aggravating circumstance  in the future, since continuing to hold office will be perceived as a  conscious desire to continue illegal and illegitimate activities. We  call upon the worthy citizens of the Republic of Armenia to support  the sacred movement, to support those people who want to herald the  beginning of a period of stable peace and a strong state with their  elimination," the statement of the factions reads.
