Acting Deputy Prime Minister, Tigran Avinyan, mentioned that within the framework of these reforms, first of all, teachers’ salaries have been reviewed, and the renovation works of educational institutions are being actively carried out:
“Significant overhaul of infrastructure in the field of public education is underway right now. Out of 129 capital renovation and construction projects took place this year, 105 of which are educational institutions,” Avinyan said.
Judicial and legal reform programs are also ongoing. Two separate chambers will be created: civil and administrative:
“The draft also regulates the issues related to the formation and normal functioning of the civil and administrative chambers of the Court of Cassation. It is planned to develop flexible mechanisms for filling the lists of candidates for judges and candidates to be promoted, without limiting the terms and the number to be filled,” said First Deputy Minister of Justice Kristiné Grigoryan.
The Civil Chamber will have 7 judges, and the Administrative Chamber will have 5 judges. According to Kristiné Grigorian, with such a strategy of reforms, they focus on different spheres and try to increase the efficiency of the judicial system.
