YEREVAN, December 13. /TASS/. Amendments to the Armenian constitution have been adopted, the country’s Central Election Commission said on Sunday.
The resolution to this effect passed unanimously by all members of the commission was read out by Central Election Commission chairman Tigran Mukuchyan.
Earlier in the day, the Central Election Commission announced the final results of the constitutional referendum held last Sunday. According to the results, the majority of voters supported constitutional amendments that provided for Armenia’s transition to the parliamentary form of government.
The opposition however challenged the referendum results with the Central Election Commission, which considered the motion for four hours. "Violations reported from local election commissions cannot be considered as a ground" to revoke the voting results, the Central Election Commission said. "The referendum results can be canceled only when violations make it impossible to clearly establish the results of the expression of will or impact the final results. A mere list of violations is not enough, legal evidence of their possible influence on the referendum results is needed. No violations that could impact the referendum results were reported," the commission said.
