Petros Ghazaryan’s today’s guest was again representing the authorities. The interview with Armen Pambukhchyan, a member of the “My Step” fraction, focused on the recent fight occurred in the National Assembly, the law on confiscation of illegal property, the Artsakh issue and other domestic political issues. Petros Ghazaryan, in fact, voiced the main public’s concerns, such us that Artsakh is being handed over, secret negotiations are underway, why no mechanisms are being developed to protect people from fake news, so as freedom of speech will not suffer at the same time, why pressure is being put on the opponents, Edmon Marukyan is being persecuted and repressed, a man is arrested for riding a bicycle, the Human Rights Defender is threatened, people’s homes are taken away according to the new law on confiscation of property, and so on. It was obvious that with his today’s questions Petros Ghazaryan was trying to compensate yesterday’s unilateral program, where 4 out of 5 guests were promoting the government’s approaches. Moreover, yesterday’s issue was criticized by Sofya Hovsepyan, a member of the “My Step” fraction, who posted the program issue on her Facebook page and expressed surprise at how such a unilateral public discussion may be organized over the Convention on the Protection of Children against Sexual Violence.
