Orinats Yerkir Party stands ready to cooperate with parliamentary opposition for implementation of opposition's 12 initiatives

  • by Tatevik Shahunyan

  • Thursday, June 12, 00:39

 Orinats Yerkir Party (OYP) that has recently left the ruling coalition, held a meeting with representatives of the Prosperous Armenia and Heritage parties in the Parliament on 11 June.
'

At the request of the OYP, the Election Code reform implying transition to a 100% proportional system of parliamentary elections was discussed. 
Hovhanness Margaryan, an MP, representatives of OYP, told ArmInfo, the three parties achieved a consensus on the given issue. They discussed also the 12 initiatives of the parliament opposition four parties, and OYP pledged to cooperate with the parties to that end.  However, they do not discuss OYP's joining the union of the non-governmental four parties. "It is not a necessity," he said. According to Margaryan, OYP plans meetings also with ARFD and Armenian National Congress parties. 

The four opposition parliamentary forces (Heritage, Armenian National Congress, ARFD and Prosperous Armenia) made public their 12 proposals for improving the situation in Armenia on 10 June.
The first step is to cancel compulsory accumulative pension.  The other proposals are to remove all paid parking lots and to cut traffic fines to less than 10% of the minimum wage; to cancel the VAT on the border and to halve the turnover tax; to redouble agricultural produce and to convert agricultural loans from foreign exchange into dram; to restart the Nairit chemical plant and to repay the debts to its employees; not to sell Vorotan Water Power Plant; not to raise public transport fares; to adopt laws curbing economic monopolies; to transit to 100% proportional parliamentary elections; and to give supervisory powers to the opposition.  The final point urges the government not to sign any document contradicting Nagorno-Karabakh's interests.
