PanARMENIAN.Net - The U.S. Embassy in Yerevan said in a statement that they are pleased to see that Armenia continues to make impressive progress on its path to a democratic society, achieving the largest two-year improvement of any country in the history of Freedom House's Nations in Transit Democracy Score.
Armenia has earned the largest two-year improvement ever recorded in Freedom House’s Nations in Transit report, but continues to remain a Semi-Consolidated Authoritarian Regime. The country's score has climbed from 2.93 to 3.00 as a result of improvements in the electoral process and the corruption situation.
