MPs Displeased With Election



"The four members of the National Commission on Television and Radio
elected by Armenian Parliament do not meet the law requirements,"
Heritage faction Chairman Stepan Safaryan said during today’s
parliamentary briefing.

Mr. Safaryan was surprised at the frankness of the newly-appointed
members. "They have pledged to do their best though they have no
notion of the sphere," added Stepan Safaryan.

Orinats Yerkir Party MP Khachik Harutyunyan is displeased with the
commission’s work. "I think my opinion will be supported by citizens
watching television as today television offers nothing but trash," said
Mr. Harutyunyan "We simply hope to effect changes in the sphere. Let’s
wait and see how the new members work," he added.

ARF-Dashnaktsutyun faction Chairman Vahan Hovhannisyan underlined
that the new NCTR members have no connection with journalism which
is required by law.

"It is important that they be somehow connected with journalism. I
don’t doubt their professionalism and honesty but it is required that
they be specialists."

I think that only specialists should have been nominated since the
sphere is specific. But the candidates pledged to avoid problems at
work," said Prosperous Armenia Party MP Naira Zurabyan.

“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
