Const Court Leaves in Force CEC Decision on Deputies by Proportional


YEREVAN, JUNE 11, NOYAN TAPAN. By the June 10 decision RA
Constitutional Court left in force RA Central Electoral Commission’s
(CEC) decision on being elected RA NA deputies by the proportional
system. According to CC, there were no substantial reasons for CEC’s
making another decision. At the same time, CC provided protocols of 6
constituency electoral commissions, in which some changes were made, to
Prosecutor’s Office to examine them by the order established by the law.

The Constitutional Court by its decision considered well-founded
claimant’s assertions about low preparedness level of some electoral
commission members. Separate facts of improper notification of voting
day and place, wrong making up of protocols, cases of impermissible
changes, as well as forging documents were also mentioned.

CC registered that some clarifications should be introduced to the
legislative field to liquidate the contradictions in the Electoral Code
and law On Television and Radio. In particular, the notion of
"preelection agitation" should be exactly formulated, the order of
discussion of application-complaints and proposals should be clarified.
According to CC, legislative guarantees should be also created, by
which political and charity activities of parties will be
differentiated. Citizens’ right to examine electoral cases at the
Appeal Court by a special examination order should be also clarified.

Representatives of Impeachment bloc, Orinats Yerkir (Country of Law),
Nor Zhamanakner (New Times) and Hanrapetutiun (Republic) parties
challenging CEC decision were not present at the pronouncing of the CC
decision. They had left the court hall at the final stage of case
examination in token of protest.

“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
