Ruling Party Blocks Parliament Debate On Opposition Bill

November 21, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

The pro-government majority in Armenia’s parliament on Wednesday prevented a planned debate on an opposition bill which is meant to foster the proper conduct of next February’s presidential election.

The parliament leadership scheduled the debate after it was formally demanded by more than 40 deputies representing the Armenian National Congress (HAK), the author of the bill, and other minority factions.

Deputies from the ruling Republican Party (HHK) and its junior partner in the governing coalition, Orinats Yerkir, boycotted the session to ensure that it does not make a quorum. Only 46 members of the 131-seat National Assembly showed up for the debate.
