Speaker of Armenian Parliament suggests that opposition take up part of the responsibility for the government of Armenia

 The opposition should understand that it should take part in the government of our state as some civic initiative do, Speaker of the Armenian Parliament Galust Sahakyan told journalists on Monday when asked to comment on the opposition's 12 proposals for improving the social-economic situation in Armenia.

Speaker of Armenian Parliament suggests that opposition take up responsibility for the government of the state

He regards this as the first attempt to take up part of the responsibility for the government of Armenia. "The things we can do we will certainly do. We are ready to discuss any problem with the opposition. We can appear with even more ambitious initiatives but we prefer to be more realistic," Sahakyan said.

On June 10 the four opposition parliamentary forces (Heritage, Armenian National Congress, ARFD and Prosperous Armenia) have made public their 12 proposals for improving the situation in Armenia. 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.
