So, Armenia's early parliamentary elections were competitive and well managed within a short time frame. However they were characterised, as said in the report, by intense polarisation and marred by increasing inflammatory language from... 24/06/2021 | 09:55:53 Thank you, dear President. Dear honourable colleagues, Dear rapporteur, You have conducted a great job Mister PISCO. You have brought a very important issue which is uniting all of us across Europe. The issue of diasporas and diaspora engagement in different fields is obvious and it's often of interest in many ways.
