The deep political crisis and chaos in Armenia does not seem to be nearing its end as the country’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan is set to continue destroying the country to keep own political power at any cost.

Recently, Pashinyan declared that Artak Davtyan has been appointed Chief of the General Staff of the Armenian Armed Forces after the previous one was dismissed. Pashinyan got rid of the previous Chief of the General Staff because he criticized his actions and together with multiple other officers called on Pashinyan to resign.

“Taking into account that the President did not sign the draft decree on appointment submitted by the Prime Minister and did not appeal to the Constitutional Court, Artak Davtyan is considered by force of law to be appointed Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces,” Pashinyan said in a statement.

On March 17, the Administrative Court of Armenia ruled on the claim of Onik Gasparyan, who challenged the legality of his dismissal from the post of Chief of the General Staff.

The decision published on the court information website says that the Administrative Court temporarily satisfied the claim, taking interim measures to recognize the dismissal of Gasparyan from office by force of law as inconsistent with legal relations until the court makes a final decision.

Thus, according to the decision of the Administrative Court, the appointment of a new chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces is prohibited, which means that Gasparyan will continue to occupy the post of head of the General Staff.

Therefore, the attempt of Pashinyan to got a new and loyal chief of the General Staff goes contrary to the decision of the court.

The ‘democratic pro-Western Armenia’ led by Pashinyan did not only successfully lost the Nagorno-Karabkah war to Azerbaijani but also destroys the system of its governance with a pretty notable speed.
