Strengthening the capacity of the National Assembly of Armenia to further support CEPA oversight and implementation

Beneficiary partner

The National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia is a unicameral body consisting of 101 Members elected for a 5-year term with a two-tier electoral system based on one (proportional) national list and 13 district lists.

The President of the National Assembly leads the Assembly. He is supported at his duties by 3 Vice Presidents (one of whom comes from the opposition). The National Assembly Council is a recently introduced organ for overall work coordination, consisting of the President of the National Assembly, his/her deputies, one representative from each faction and the chairpersons of the standing committees. Its main duties include approving agendas for regular sessions and sittings, establishing the sequence of debate on the agenda issues of the regular sittings and determining the duration of the debate on an issue, establishing timelines for the work of committees, deciding on staff structure and overseeing inter-parliamentary co-operation.

The National Assembly performs its functions at plenary and committee level. The National Assembly standing committees review the draft laws and other issues, present their conclusions to the National Assembly and exercise parliamentary oversight. Ad-hoc committees may be established for the debate of separate laws, decisions of the National Assembly, statements and draft messages, as well as issues related to parliamentary ethics and the submission of their conclusions to the National Assembly.
