MKR Parliament Turns Down State Property Privatization Program

YEREVAN (Yerkir)–The parliament of Mountainous Karabagh Republic rejected a proposed national privatization program–despite the backing of parliament’s majority Democratic Liberal Party.

It was stricken down when parliament’s Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) faction member Artur Mosiyan demanded a detailed report be submitted on the implementation of the current privatization program during the past years–including data on the number of new jobs created as a result of the program–as well as information on repriman’s of officials not fulfilling their obligations. Another ARF faction member Levon Hayriyan–said that Stepanakert residents–unlike all others from former Soviet countries–have not received any benefits from the privatization.

Since the proposed program was rejected–the law already in place adopted a few years ago–will continue to be in force.
