Armenian President Armen Sarkissian returned the draft decree on the resignation of Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces Onik Gasparyan.
As noted in the press service of the president, on February 25, 2021, a proposal was presented to the president – a draft decree on the resignation of Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces Onik Gasparyan.
The draft decree was studied in the office of the President of the Republic, discussed in detail with leading lawyers and independent experts.
Summing up the opinions of lawyers and experts, we can conclude that the draft decree obviously contradicts the Constitution.
The president does not defend any political force and makes decisions guided exclusively by national and national interests.
It is indisputable that the Armed Forces must remain neutral in political matters.
