Armenian National Platform Issues Statement in Reaction to Government's Initiative for Constitutional Reforms

23 September 2015

In reaction to the official announcement of the incumbent government of Armenia to put on referendum the revision of Armenian constitution in December this year, Armenian National Platform of the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum issued a statement expressing its position on this matter. While acknowledging that the constitution of Armenia contains provisions requiring certain amendments, the National Platform expresses in the statement its concern about the announced constitutional reforms and the upcoming referendum as these initiatives are considered untimely and do not correspond to the interests of the state and the society. The statement thus calls on all political forces to engage in further discussions on the constitutional amendments, and urges Armenian authorities to postpone the referendum on constitutional changes until the forthcoming national elections are held.
