/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The draft constitutional amendments represented to
the second reading excel the previous package, since the authorities,
opposition and even the civic society came to be engaged in the process
presently, head of the OSCE Yerevan Office Vladimir Pryakhin said
when commenting to PanARMENIAN.Net reporter on the current stage of
constitutional reform in Armenia. In his words, the draft is ready
for referendum. When asked whether the failure of the referendum
can cause political crisis V. Pryakhin said, “In case the referendum
fails no catastrophe or cataclysm will occur, though it will impede
the process of democratization in the country.” He also noted that the
OSCE refrains form making any forecasts on the forthcoming referendum
and that the organization is only charged with the task to assist
in preparing for the event. He pointed out to the establishment of
dialogue between the authors and co-authors of the Constitution,
the opposition and the civic society. “Everyone made contribution to
the draft Constitution,” he said.
