Opposition Set To Lose Control Of Parliament Panel

December 18, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

The opposition minority in Armenia’s parliament on Tuesday looked set to lose control of one of its 13 standing committees tasked with enforcing a code of conduct for lawmakers.

The Ethics Committee has until now been the sole parliamentary panel dominated by opposition deputies. The ruling Republican Party of Armenia (HHK) had agreed to cede 4 of the 6 committee seeds to deputies representing the Prosperous Armenia, Dashnaktsutyun and Zharangutyun party as well as the Armenian National Congress (HAK) as a gesture of goodwill.

The National Assembly approved in the first reading a bill that will give the HHK and its junior coalition partner, the Orinats Yerkir party, two more seats and thus make the two sides equally represented in the Ethics Committee.
