YEREVAN, APRIL 1, ARMENPRESS. The National Assembly of Armenia adopted a bill on making changes in the Constitutional Law, according to which ranked voting system will be abolished in Armenia and the upcoming elections will be held under the proportional system. ARMENPRESS reports 82 MPs voted in favor of the bill.

In the past, a mixed system of ranked voting and proportional system was used.

Opposition ‘’Bright Armenia Party”” was against this change, proposing open-list proportional system.

The signing of the President is still necessary for the bill to come into effect.

“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
