Dear Compatriots,

 

On behalf of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia, congratulations on the Day of the Constitution and State Symbols.

The Constitution is the backbone of the state and serves as the basis of the rule of law. The Constitution is the safeguard and guarantee for sustainable development, security of the state and smooth functioning of the state institutions.

The fight for the establishment of a national state was the biggest dream of our people and it is inextricably linked with the establishment of the rule of law. Implementation of the rule of law is binding for each and everyone and is the highest value not only for the incumbent government, but also for every citizen.

The Constitution of the Republic of Armenia is the only legal basis from which the legitimacy of the entire public authority stems.

It is my considered opinion that it is possible to build a strong, democratic and developing Armenia only in conditions of the rule of the Constitution and laws, but not on emotions. I am deeply convinced that we should be guided by this idea and build a common developing state based on the principle of separation of powers and mutual respect.

Our people won the right to constitutionality, and today, on the Day of the Constitution and State Symbols, we were honored to congratulate each other for the glory of the Republic of Armenia and the RA Constitution.
