THE GOVERNMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF ARMENIA IS AGAINST THE LEGAL INNOVATION BY HRANT BAGRATYAN
OCTOBER 23, 2012
YEREVAN, OCTOBER 23, ARMENPRESS. The Government of the Republic
of Armenia is against the package of legal projects by deputy for
“Armenian National Congress” of the National Assembly of the Republic
of Armenia Hrant Bagratyan. This package suggests defining an average
pension corresponding to the average salary. As reports “Armenpress”,
citing official website of the Government of the Republic of Armenia,
this question has been involved in the agenda of the session dated
to October 25.
In accordance with the argumentation of the Government of the
Republic of Armenia these suggestions do not spring from the logic
of the pension policy of the Republic of Armenia. In particular,
the circumstance of proportional periodical rise of all rates of
pension, that, taking into consideration the difference in the method
of calculation of rates of working, military and social pensions,
will cause greater diversity in present differences.
In the argumentation of the Government of the Republic of Armenia
among other things is said: “It should be mentioned that legislation
of the Republic of Armenia does not define the concept of “average
pension”. The rate for the average pension is calculated as a result
of the pension policy and is reflected in the appropriate documents.
Taking into consideration this it is not clear what rate must be
taken to define the size of the pension.”
