Armenia examines issue of creation of Supreme Court 
ArmInfo. We are discussing the  possible elimination of the institution of the Constitutional Court.   Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan announced this during a  press conference.  The Prime Minister noted that the issue of creating the Supreme Court  is being considered.  <This practice is quite common in many  countries. The fact is that today the Constitutional Court and the  judicial system are practically not connected with each other. In this regard, a number of problems arise>,  said Pashinyan.  He  said that if by the end of next year it becomes obvious that there  are no special changes in the judicial system, then fundamental  reforms will be implemented in this area.  As for the funds allocated  for the referendum on introducing estates into the Constitution, the  Prime Minister emphasized that they budget has these capabilities.  <If there is no referendum, then these funds will be spent on other  purposes. As for the referendum itself, we will not be able to  conduct it under the conditions of the coronavirus, since we will  jeopardize the health and lives of our elderly compatriots. But the  issue related to the crisis of the Constitutional Court should be  resolved in one way or another>, Pashinyan concluded.
