“No matter how fundamental the changes to the electoral system to which there is quite a common approach are we must try to improve and substantially change party-related regulations, since we have today the task of creating favorable conditions for the formation of a political field, which is a long-term issue,” ruling My Step MP Nikolay Baghdasaryan said addressing lawmakers.
