The Partnership for Open Society Initiative representing more than 60 civil society organizations held a public discussion titled “Constitutional Amendments in Armenia: Realization of rule of law and safeguards for human rights and fundamental freedoms.”
Media Center, September 23, 2015: For August the Electric Networks of Armenia submitted a request for 1 billion 8 million drams to Government for the latter to subsidize the difference in consumers' electricity bills 986.8 million drams of which make the consumption by citizens.
The recent escalation across the Armenian-Azerbaijani border has inflicted great damage on the local population. At the Media Center hosted press conference the Civil Contract Party members shared impressions on their recent visit to the villages on the border.
Armenia is still unready for the transition to the parliamentary system and there has never been a public demand for constitutional changes, said political analysts at Gyumri’s Asparez Journalists’ Club.
Armenia’s Government cannot ensure the long-term subsidization of the increased electricity price since the country has a constant budget deficit and it lacks financial resources to subsidize all sectors.
