Chairman of the Armenian Constitutional Court Hrayr Tovmasyan has issued a congratulatory message on the Day of Constitution and State Symbols celebrated on 5 July, stressing that a strong and democratic Armenia can be built exclusively under the constitutional supremacy.
“The Constitution is the backbone of the state, the core of the rule of law. The protector and the key guarantor of the country’s sustainable development, security and the functioning of state institutions is the Constitution,” the chairman said.
Tovmasyan stressed the Constitution of Armenia serves as the only legal basis for the legitimacy of exercising the whole public authority.
“I am deeply convinced a strong, democratic and developing Armenia can be built exclusively under the supremacy of the law and Constitution, rather than emotions. I believe we should be guided by this idea and together build a state adhering to the principle of separation of powers and mutual respect,” the statement read.
