CC: Proposal for Referendum on Confidence in Prez Not Imperative


YEREVAN, APRIL 12. ARMINFO. The RA Constitutional Court (CC) stated
once more that by its decision of April 16, 2003, it upheld the
decision on the election of Robert Kocharian Armenia’s President,
which was adopted by the RA Central Electoral Commission on March 11,
2003. The CC’s decision was final and imperative.

In its statement provided to ARMINFO, the CC once more stressed that
the CC’s proposal for holding of a referendum on confidence in the
President within a year is not imperative and does not have any legal
consequences. According to the statement, the CC’s proposal was
supposed to relieve political tension on the threshold of the
parliamentary elections and referendum on constitutional amendments on
May 25, 2003. In its statement, the CC calls for retraining from
making its proposal a subject of political speculations.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
