ELECTIONS OF LOCAL SELF-GOVERNANCE BODIES TO TAKE PLACE IN AUTUMN ARE
TOUCHSTONE TO SOME EXTENT BEFORE FUTURE STATE ELECTIONS, RA PRIME
MINISTER BELIEVES

YEREVAN, AUGUST 15, NOYAN TAPAN. Issues connected with the referendum
on the constitutional reforms and holding the elections of the local
self-governance bodies to take place in autumn were discussed at the
August 12 meeting of RA Prime Minister Andranik Margarian and
representatives of the Republic Council of the Communies’ Union of
Armenia. As Noyan Tapan was informed by the RA Government’s
Information and Public Relations Department, A.Margarian welcame the
initiation of the Communities’ Union of Armenia to create an
initiative group on public discussions around the Constitutional
reforms, awareness and preparation for the referendum. A.Margarian
emphasized the active participation of all interested parties,
including public organizations, political forces, civil society, in
the affair of working out, improvement and adoption of that document
excessively important for the state. Considering of not less
importance a democratic, free, just and transparent holding of the
elections of the local self-governance bodies, the head of the
Government regarded those elections as a touchstone to some extent
before the 2007 and 2008 state elections, in the sense of a complete
formation of the local self-governance bodies, development and
strengthening of the local democracy.
