YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 6, ARMENPRESS. Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan will participate in parliamentary debates of the ruling bloc’s bill that envisages the termination of powers of Constitutional Court Chairman Hrayr Tovmasyan and some other justices.

Deputy Speaker Alen Simonyan told ARMENPRESS that the procedure enables the PM to deliver remarks at the debates.

“If it is a Constitutional amendment, the Prime Minister is allowed to have a speech before the vote,” Simonyan said.

On February 6, the parliament convened a special session with one item on the agenda, the bill introduced by the ruling My Step bloc which seeks Constitutional amendments aimed at resolving the crisis around the Constitutional Court.

The parliamentary majority’s bill on making constitutional amendments seeks to enable replacing the Constitutional Court justices who were appointed under the previous constitution.

“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
