The speakers were Edgar Vardanyan and Armen Baghdasaryan, political scientists, and Ara Papian, head of Modus Vivendi analytical center.
On October 22 the National Assembly did not adopt the bill of amendments to the electoral code in an extraordinary session. Prime minister Pashinyan labelled it as sabotage while the government is ready for December snap elections with the old electoral code.
Ara Papian thinks that overturning the the new electoral code bill was a demonstration of muscles on behalf of the RP. This way the RP was claiming to become opposition in the coming parliament.
Edgar Vardanyan considers this act as a demonstration of power on behalf of RP. He also noted that in the next parliament “My Step” alliance should engage representatives from different political forces.
Armen Baghdasaryan disagreed with Vardanyan. He thinks such an eclectic list will be artificial. Each political force should come up with its members to make it possible to elect and have a parliament that will engage all the segments of the society.
