Heritage leader calls for Fourth Republic formation, new Constitution

PanARMENIAN.Net - Heritage opposition party leader Raffi Hovannisian calls for adoption of new Constitution and formation of Fourth Republic in Armenia.

“Armenia should renounce the semi-presidential government system and proceed to either parliamentary or presidential one,” Hovannisian said during the Civil Meeting organized by his party.

“The semi-system doesn’t work. It doesn’t secure democracy,” he said. “The Fourth Republic is needed to make Armenia a legal and democratic state, where people will have the possibility to determine their future. A constitutional assembly should be formed to organize a constitutional referendum.”
