President of Armenia has made a
congratulatory address to the people on occasion of July 5 - The Constitution
Day, the president's press-service said.
I congratulate you on the occasion of Constitution
The Basic law reflects the path our people have chosen
aimed at building a free and democratic society, a social and legal state. A
huge amount of work has been done since the independence: we have matured as a
society and have grown stronger as a state.
Our country's political life experienced several crises,
but even in those situations the Constitution displayed its viability and
revealed its potential for responding to challenges.
During this time we have felt the need for carrying
out systemic changes in our country which can't be complete and comprehensive
without new constitutional amendments. At present, the new proposals for
constitutional amendments are being actively discussed by specialists, as well
as by interested individuals and organizations.
I once again congratulate you
on the occasion of this important state holiday. I wish us all follow the
Constitution of the Republic of Armenia piously and I hope it will
unflinchingly serve the purposes of a civilized mode of living and
development," the president says in his address.
