From Assembly to Court: Opposition to file suit over RPA boycott of special session

November 23, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Oppositional Armenian National Congress together with the other non-pro-establishment forces will be filing a lawsuit at the Constitutional Court within eight days, claiming that the authorities’ actions subverting the urgent parliament session on Wednesday were anti-constitutional.

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

However, the ruling Republican Party of Armenia, holding absolute majority in the parliament (69 mandates), and Orinats Yerkir party, in coalition with the Republicans, had stated right from the beginning they would not participate in the session, hence there wasn’t a quorum.
