In an interview with www.2rd.am, Armenia’s second president Robert Kocharian rejects claims that he is behind a recent Prosperous Armenia Party initiative to debate whether Armenia should move to a parliamentary system of government.

Q – Mr. Kocharyan, when the Prosperous Armenia Party proposed that discussions be held regarding the possibility of transforming the government of Armenia to a parliamentary system, i.e., holding parliamentary elections on a 100% proportional basis, cutting the powers of the president, etc, rumors began to circulate that you were behind the initiative. How true are the rumors?

A – Had I been a supporter of a parliamentary form of government, most likely such a system would have been in place starting in 2005, after the constitutional referendum initiated by the president himself.
