Armenian Parliament “is on the right track”, President says

Yerevan/Mediamax/. Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan has noted that the parliament is working to higher standards now.

The President has made that statement at the meeting with senior members of the National Assembly of Armenia today.

“Armenia needs a parliament that not only adopts legislation at the necessary moments, but also carries out efficient parliamentary oversight. In this regard, I believe the National Assembly is on the right track,” said Serzh Sargsyan.
