Nalbandian: Racism and racial discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance grossly violate human dignity and give rise to tensions within and between societies. That is why the fight against them became one of the main priorities of our chairmanship.
ARFD, ANC, PAP and "Heritage" parliamentary factions have started gathering signatures for application to the Constitutional Court on the matter of obligatory accumulative pension system. At present, they have managed to gather 30 signatures, though 27 are enough to appeal to the CC.
Members of these factions think that introduction of the component "obligatory" contradicts several points of Armenia's Constitution. All the attempts of the opposition factions to delay this reform were failed by the parliamentary majority. Therefore, the "obligatory" component will step in starting January 2014.
