The procedure of termination of a member of the Constitutional Court supposes that the relevant resolution of the National Assembly must be immediately submitted to the Constitutional Court, the head of the Standing Committee for State and Legal Affairs Vladimir Vardanyan told Lragir.am, commenting on the procedure of termination of the powers of the chair of the Constitutional Court.
According to him, the Constitutional Court accepts the resolution of the National Assembly for proceedings after which the Constitutional Court must make a decision within 30 days as per the procedure described in the Constitutional Law on the Constitutional Court. This period may be prolonged by another 50 days if there is a rationale provided by the court.
He added that if the issue is related to a person, the voting is always through secret ballot but the whole process envisages verbal proceedings.
“As per the Constitutional Law on the Constitutional Court, once the query is accepted for proceedings, the judge is suspended with pay. However, he or she is not entitled to take part in the meetings, as answerer his or her right is limited,” Vladimir Vardanyan said.
