Armenia should maintain parliamentary system of governance – Pashinyan

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenia should maintain the parliamentary system of governance, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said in his Constitution Day message on Tuesday, July 5.

"Power in the Republic of Armenia belongs to the people. The people exercise their power through free elections, referenda, as well as through state and local self-governing bodies and public officials as provided by the Constitution," the Prime Minister said.

"The strong legal system, the independent judicial system, the mechanisms for legality should become reliable guarantees for the protection of human dignity, without limiting and damaging democratic values, and the solution of this issue is among the priorities of our agenda."

Pashinyan reminded that a Specialized Commission for Constitutional Reforms has been formed and a draft concept of constitutional reforms should be presented by the end of the year.

"Considering it obvious that the Constitution needs to be constantly developed and improved, at the same time I must emphasize my belief that Armenia should continue to maintain the parliamentary system of governance, because the events of 2021 proved that this system provides more effective mechanism for crises management, involvement and decisive participation of the people in the political debate," he added.
