Armenia’s new coquettishness to Kremlin: membership to Eurasian Union
Armenian parliament discussed the draft law on Armenia’s withdrawal from the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU).
The chairman of the parliament Ara Babloyan said the commission on foreign relations of parliament reviewed the document and assessed it negatively. Nevertheless, draft law will be discussed at extraordinary meeting today.
The author of proposal on Armenia’s withdrawal from the Eurasian Economic Union is opposition bloc “Yelk” (Way Out).
After discussions draft law was put to the vote. 79 of 105 lawmakers voted against,10 in favor. Some of the deputies in “Yelk” fraction also voted against the proposal. Ruling Republicans and Dashnaktsutyun parties voted against Armenia’s withdrawal from Eurasian Economic Union.
By the way, 65 deputies represent Republican party, 7 deputies of Dashnaks, 31 MPs from opposition party “Prosperous Armenia”, 9 lawmakers from “Yelk” party at the parliament of Armenia. As the vast majority support the governmental fraction, adoption of any proposal depends on them .
Those deputies who are considered as oppositions try to pretend for democratic image of parliament. That is why it was clear from discussions and voting that issue of withdrawal from Eurasian Economic Union is a show. During the discussions the real purpose of Armenia became known. Ruling party MPs talked more about Russia’s selling of weapons to Azerbaijan, agreement between Yerevan and Moscow on selling of gas and weapons, than leaving Eurasian Economic Union. Read More
