PACE Confirmed Armenian Delegation’s Credentials

14:02 / 01/26/2010

PACE Committee on rules of procedure confirmed Armenian delegation’s
credentials at the January 26 session, the parliament source informed

Parliamentary procedure stipulated discussion of the matter by
Committee first, thereafter in case of positive decision the issue
had to be discussed in the course of plenary session, the source
says. In this case, the matter on Armenian delegation will appear
on the agenda only for endorsement. Thus, RA delegation members will
continue their activities in PACE.

At its winter session opened in Strasbourg on January 25 the CE
Parliamentary Assembly (PACE) confirmed the powers of all the national
delegations except for the Armenian and Albanian delegations. The
European parliamentarians stated the Armenian Parliament fell foul of
the rules for composing the Armenian delegation, without explaining
what they meant.

On January 15, RA Parliament Speaker Hovik Abrahamyan confirmed the
Armenian delegation members. He removed the Heritage Party member
Zaruhi Bostanjyan from the list of permanent members of the Armenian
delegation to PACE.

“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
