“I have repeatedly stated that there were concerns in the draft law, and I and my colleagues had made a number of suggestions. I can say that the main proposals we have made have been accepted and some will be discussed at the National Assembly session. But now, getting acquainted with the amended version, I can say that this version of the draft law is more acceptable than the previous one … ”


Suren Manukyan,

ARF Faction:

“It’s obvious that there is misinterpretation of the bill”

It is also evident that there is misinterpretation of the draft law, people are misunderstood or incomprehensibly perceive  its content. But the ARF is generally in favor of the law, with some changes, so we are going to make suggestions. What we will find in the course of our discussion will be discussed during the discussions. At this point, I am not ready to mention them, as we have not yet discussed the faction”.
