The president will announce his decision in the coming hours - Artur Vanetsyan

The meeting of the representative of the opposition Homeland Salvation Movement with the President of Armenia Armen Sarkissian has ended.

"We met with the president and discussed the issue of submitting the draft decree on dismissing the Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces to the Constitutional Court. The President took note of our position and informed he would announce about the decision in the coming hours," Vanetsyan told reporters.

Earlier, the representatives of the opposition demanded an urgent meeting with the President. As the Movement said in a released statement, they considered the president's position on the Chief of the General Staff of the Armenian Armed Forces quite concerning. The statement came, after President announced he had applied to the Constitutional Court with a request to determine the constitutionality of only the law “On the Status of Military Service and Servicemen” but failed to turn to the Court to determine the compliance of the decree decree itself on relieving the Chief of the General Staff of his duties.
