Eduard Sharmazanov said ( about Nikol Pashinyan ) : “The dictator of our times wasn’t satisfied with this and personally participated in the blockage of courts the next day. This was an unlawful and unconstitutional act. The Constitution lays down the principle of separation of powers, and by blocking courts, Pashinyan proved once again that his policy has nothing to do with democracy. The head of government of any legal state can’t interfere in the activities of the legislature and the judiciary, much less block courts. Later, we witnessed attacks on the Constitutional Court and listened to the famous speech by Vahe Grigoryan, who was elected judge of the Constitutional Court by the National Assembly. Later, it turned out that he was elected ‘president’ of the Constitutional Court. Now the legislature has adopted a law by which an attempt is being made to bribe judges of the Constitutional Court. This serves as a brilliant example of government corruption,” External link

Today Nikol Pashinyan has not stated that Artsakh will not be part of Azerbaijan, the phrase ‘Azeri community [of Karabakh]’ has been put forth, and we see that there is no progress" External link

Eduard Sharmazanov noted ( about Nikol Pashinyan ) : “I regret being one of the deputies of the National Assembly who not only cast his vote in favor of Armen Sarkissian to become the President of the Republic of Armenia, but also gave a speech and endorsed his nomination. As a matter of fact, I protected him from Nikol Pashinyan’s allegations. Later, everything turned upside down. Nikol Pashinyan became Armen Sarkissian’s partner, or at least they understand each other very well. Unfortunately, today, Armen Sarkissian isn’t performing the functions of the President that are enshrined in the provisions of the Constitution of Armenia, and we witnessed that on October 2 of last year when Nikol Pashinyan had surrounded the National Assembly. We were all expecting Armen Sarkissian to ratify the bill, but he did everything possible to make sure ratification was prolonged for months,” External link

Our government has split the society into blacks and whites, revolutionaries and anti-revolutionaries.

Their military actions were accompanied by especially violent and brutal acts against peaceful civilians. The criminal actions of the Azerbaijani armed forces directly reminded the terrorist style of the Islamic state. Unfortunately, not one representative of this assembly condemned those criminal actions of Azerbaijan. Distinguished colleagues, It is time to learn lessons from history.

Eduard Sharmazanov said ( about Nikol Pashinyan ) : “The dictator of our times wasn’t satisfied with this and personally participated in the blockage of courts the next day. This was an unlawful and unconstitutional act. The Constitution lays down the principle of separation of powers, and by blocking courts, Pashinyan proved once again that his policy has nothing to do with democracy. The head of government of any legal state can’t interfere in the activities of the legislature and the judiciary, much less block courts. Later, we witnessed attacks on the Constitutional Court and listened to the famous speech by Vahe Grigoryan, who was elected judge of the Constitutional Court by the National Assembly. Later, it turned out that he was elected ‘president’ of the Constitutional Court. Now the legislature has adopted a law by which an attempt is being made to bribe judges of the Constitutional Court. This serves as a brilliant example of government corruption,” External link

Today Nikol Pashinyan has not stated that Artsakh will not be part of Azerbaijan, the phrase ‘Azeri community [of Karabakh]’ has been put forth, and we see that there is no progress" External link

As a matter of fact, I protected him from Nikol Pashinyan’s allegations. Later, everything turned upside down. Nikol Pashinyan became Armen Sarkissian’s partner, or at least they understand each other very well. Unfortunately, today, Armen Sarkissian isn’t performing the functions of the President that are enshrined in the provisions of the Constitution of Armenia, and we witnessed that on October 2 of last year when Nikol Pashinyan had surrounded the National Assembly.
