Dear compatriots,

 

This has been a year of multiple hardships and unprecedented challenges for the Armenian people. Many families welcome this New Year’s Eve and Christmas in a bitter grief and mourn the loss of their loved ones. The war unleashed against the Armenian people on 27 September 2020 brought to the loss of thousands of courageous Armenians, distorted our routine, put under the threat our pan-Armenian dreams.

Today I bow and I pledge my respect to every soldier, from a general to a private and a volunteer, from a reservist to the people responsible for the back-line who dedicated their lives for the security and peace of the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh Your courage and heroism have, indeed, proved to be invaluable.

 

Dear compatriots,

At the same time, the year of 2020 was characterized by the unprecedented spread of new global pandemic - Coronavirus, which caused great human losses, and Armenia did not remain on the sidelines. I extend my condolence to all families who lost their loved ones due to the pandemic. On this New Year’s Eve, I would like to express my special gratitude to all our physicians at the forefront of health care and the employees in this field, who, during this pandemic, welcome the New Year at their working places and implementing their duties.

 

Dear compatriots,

The passing year was also crucial for the institutional development of the Constitutional Court, taking into consideration the recent constitutional amendments and the role of the Constitutional Court in the system of public administration of Armenia. Today, the Constitutional Court consistently carries out its basic constitutional mission by ensuring the supremacy of the Constitution in the Republic of Armenia. I do believe that in the new year the Constitutional Court will not only continue to administer constitutional justice for the benefit of every citizen of the Republic of Armenia, but also appropriate opportunities and fertile ground for the further improvement and strengthening of the reputation of the high Court will be created, which will also contribute, in general, to stabilization of the atmosphere of trust towards the judiciary.

 

Dear compatriots,

Although the traditional holiday seasonal mood is overshadowed by various problems, we must be well aware that today it is more relevant than ever to remember and to take care about our families, friends and the beloved. In such difficult conditions, each kind-hearted word is of the greater value than ever, and in such a challenging situation, it is the duty of each of us to be integrated and united.

 

May year of 2021 bring peace, health, prosperity and unbreakable faith in the future.
