Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan spoke on the Public Television of Armenia about the situation around the Constitutional Court and the forthcoming referendum.

“We will not have a Constitutional Court in force for more than a year now, until 2035, if we do not change anything in our Constitution today. Why is this important? We have introduced a completely new government system with the new Constitution of 2015 and that new government system is a mechanism which is one and all the details of that mechanism must correspond to the parameters described in our Constitution, "the Prime Minister noted.

Asked why all this is being done so quickly, why not put the new constitution to a referendum at once, the prime minister replied: "Global constitutional changes imply very serious, substantial changes, and when we speak of constitutional changes we speak of the development of an existing constitution, and it cannot be developed unless the existing constitution is de facto enacted. Roughly speaking, today we want to bring the existing Constitution into force and to have a constitutional reality, ”Pashinyan said.
