Armen Martirosyan and Samvel Nikoyan on the Constitutional Changes
Armen Martirosyan and Samvel Nikoyan shared thoughts on the constitutional changes and upcoming referendum on December 6.

“The authorities actually are acting in line with the constitutional changes though they are not adopted yet,” said Armen Martirosyan from the Heritage Party. Martirosyan recalled the appointment of Surik Khachatryan’s son Tigran Khachatryan as an assistant to the head of the Hayantar (ArmForest) state non-profit organization and the recent arrest of an armed band in Yerevan.

Samvel Nikoyan from the Republican Faction, spoke on the necessity of constitutional changes and said the Constitution adopted in 2005 has risks.

“Hyper centralization of power on the one hand, and chaos on the other. If right now there is the hyper centralization of power, in other cases it can evolve into a chaos. On the days when the Republican Party holds board meetings on Melik Adamyan, journalists are all there. It is because all decisions are made there,” said Samvel Nikoyan.

“Yes, we are for the parliamentary system,” Armen Martirosyan said, “But we are against the single party system. These are two different things.”
