YEREVAN. – The vote on amendments to the pension law is invalid,
secretary of Prosperous Armenia group Naira Zohrabyan said.

The four non-ruling factions (Armenian National Congress (ANC),
Prosperous Armenia (PAP), ARF Dashnaktsutyun, and Heritage) held a
press conference after the parliament passed the pension aw in the
first reading.

“We declare debates and vote invalid. We will continue our struggle
for full implementation of the Constitutional Court judgment,” she
said.

Once the parliament adopted the bill in the first reading, the
opposition ARF Dashnaktsutyun and ANC parliamentary factions accused
the ruling party deputies of voting on the bill in lieu of their
absent colleagues. Nonetheless, NA Speaker Galust Sahakyan did not
cancel the voting results.
