Ruling Republican Party MPs Arpineh Hovhannisyan and Davit Haroutyunyan have introduced a proposal to change the make-up of the parliament’s Ethics Committee in such a way that the regime has an equal number of members as does the opposition.

Right now, there are six members on the committee – three from the opposition and one each from the Republican Party, Prosperous Armenian Party and the Country of Law Party. ANC MP Nikol Pashinyan heads the committee.

Hovhannisyan told Hetq that she proposes to add more members from the ruling Republican Party.

When asked why she’s submitted the proposal at the current time, Hovhannisyan replied that, “It is clear that the current make-up allows for the possibility that the Ethics Committee can be politicized.”
