United by boycott: PAP, ANC in more pressed ranks after parliament majority blocks debate on changes in election laws

Words such as “consolidation” and “single candidate” appeared to sound more convincing when uttered by initiators of the Wednesday special meeting of parliament that was boycotted and effectively thwarted by the ruling majority.

The opposition Armenian National Congress had initiated the meeting to debate amendments to some election laws that it said would exclude fraud in next year’s presidential election. The Dashnaktsutyun and Heritage factions as well as the faction of the Prosperous Armenia Party, which has increasingly positioned itself as an “alternative” to the current government seconded the motion that eventually secured signatures from more than a third of lawmakers – enough to convene a special meeting under the Armenian Constitution.
