Civil initiative "I am against" is not striving to the political power and is acting only for benefit of citizens, the initiative has disseminated such a statement at its Facebook page.
"Civil initiative "I am against" has set itself a task to fight some points of the law "On accumulative pension system", in particular, its obligatory component, as numerous norms which characterize it, are anti-social, anti-constitutional and limit and break Constitutional rights and freedoms of citizens. As the law touches on the most important problem of social policy, we have a task to settle the most important social and political problem for the benefit of citizens of Armenia", - the statement says. In this context, the initiative has willy-nilly found itself in a certain political plane.
"But the initiative cannot have political preferences or aspirations, as we do not strive towards the political power. Our task is to resolve this social and political problem for the benefit of citizens of Armenia through forcing any power, present or future, to feel responsibility for its citizens and to be guided in its actions only by the interests of citizens. This is the key principle of our activity and different forces and structures have joined this principle", - the statement reads.
