Armenian President Armen Sarkissan once again refused to sign Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s motion to appoint Artak Davryan as the new Armed Forces General Staff head, says the Armenian presidential press service, APA reports citing TASS.

Sarkissan will also not challenge this motion in the Constitutional Court: "The president of the republic will not sign the draft order and will not turn to the Constitutional Court. We remind that, on March 10, 2021, the president has already contacted the Constitutional Court, asking to decide on whether the law ‘on military service and the status of serviceman’ complies with the norms of the Constitution. The Constitutional Court’s ruling and adoption of necessary measures may have a significant effect on legal procedures of dismissal and appointment of a General Staff head."
