The government’s new draft on the order of organizing and holding public discussions is put to public discussion on e-draft.am. 62 voted for and 38 against.
Heriknaz Tigranyan from Transparency International and Artur Sakunts from Helsinki Citizens’ Assembly Vanadzor office touched upon the draft’s problematic clauses at July 2 Media Center discussion.
“The yes or no answers on e-draft.am will not significantly affect the future outcome of the draft as they only reflect attitude. And even 100% against attitude does not mean that the authors of the draft can get that negative voting till the end”, said Heriknaz Tigranyan.
Tigranyan notes that in public perceptions participation in any process assumes meetings with specialized community or stakeholders, organizing open hearings and discussions.
