YEREVAN, OCTOBER 26, ARMENPRESS: President Robert Kocharian welcomed today efforts of political and non-governmental organizations to reach out to the population in order to explain to them the benefits of a package of constitutional amendments.
Kocharian said thousands of copies of amended constitution will be printed and distributed to voters across Armenia. “We shall try to send a copy of the amended constitution to every family so that they can read it and make their conclusions,” Kocharian told journalists.
The president also spoke highly of local government elections, citing the assessment of international observers, saying they all passed calmly except a couple of communities. “We are ready to work with all elected mayors and community heads who have won the trust of their voters,” Kocharian said.
He also shrugged off speculations that the outcome of November 6 parliamentary elections in Azerbaijan could have any impact on the resolution of the Karabakh conflict.
