Armenian National Assembly’s members spoke Thursday on international
institutions’ assessment of Armenian processes, often not so pleasant.
People MP parliamentary group’s member Vahram Baghdasaryan shares
Freedom House organization’s opinion, according to which Armenia is
an authoritarian state. In his words, little progress is seen in the
republic. To speed up the progress It is necessary to find out what
hobbles it, he said.
Levon Lazarian, an MP from Dashnaktsutyun, one of the ruling coalition
three parties, is convinced Armenia is quite stable and democratic
country. He thinks international organizations’ judgments shouldn’t
be taken seriously, as they are subjective.
Other lawmakers shared his opinion. Nobody disputed his statement –
the opposition MPs were absent from parliament discussion.
