Prosperous Armenia Party sees no need for constitutional reform

At present Armenia does not need any constitutional reform, as the effective Constitution is able to settle the problems in the country, including the one connected with human rights and freedoms, and establishment of a social and legal state. The statement came from Naira Zohrabyan, Secretary of Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP), in response to ArmInfo's request for comments on occasion of the Constitution Day that is celebrated in Armenia on 5 July.

 

Zohrabyan said Armenia's major problems are not imperfect laws or Constitution, but non-fulfillment of the regulatory acts and provisions of these laws.

 

"The human rights and freedoms are protected on paper, but ignored in practice. That is the problem. It is necessary to settle these problems by properly fulfilling the legislation, but not initiating Constitutional reforms. Fulfilling the requirements of our Constitution, we can achieve real success in establishment of a social and legal state," the parliamentarian claims. 

 

To recall, the President initiated a project of constitutional reforms that feature transition to the parliamentary system of government in Armenia. The document, particularly, calls to expand the parliament's supervisory powers, authorize the legislative body to elect the president for a 7-year term.  Sargsyan assures he does not seek the prime minister's post.

 

On July 5 Armenia celebrates the Constitution Day. The Constitution was adopted in 1995. On 27 November 2005, the document underwent certain amendments under president Robert Kocharyan.
