No Quorum: Parliament majority boycott thwarts special meeting called by opposition

November 21, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

The special parliament session called by the radical opposition Armenian National Congress (ANC) and scheduled for Wednesday failed to take place, just as expected, because of the lack of quorum.

The Armenian National Congress (ANC) initiated and the other two non-coalition factions, including the Armenian Revolutionary Federation Dashnaktsutyun (ARF), Prosperous Armenia and Heritage, supported the holding of such a session to discuss the ANC-submitted package of amendments to election laws.

The amendments suggesting means to prevent possible violations and fraud during the forthcoming presidential elections mostly refer to removing from the voter lists the names of Armenian citizens absent from the country for more than six months, making public the lists of those who have voted after the elections, installing surveillance cameras at polling stations, enhancing proxies’ and observers’ authority.
