Draft proposal: Armenia could establish Minister of Interior

January 21
The Justice Ministry of Armenia has proposed establishing a Ministry of Interior, according to a draft document published on a government website for proposed legal acts. According to the draft proposal, the Police, the Investigation Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Migration and Citizenship Service, as well as the Police Educational Complex will be subordinated to the ministry. The Prime Minister will appoint and dismiss the heads of all the bodies , except for the police, upon the recommendation of the Minister of Interior. Under the proposal, the chief of police will continue directly controlling the day-to-day work of the police, while the Minister of Interior will be responsible for the development and implementation of policies in the field. A Ministry of Internal Affairs was established in Armenia in June 1992 by order of then President Levon Ter-Petrosyan. The Ministry was active until December 2002, when the ministry, along with the Ministry of National Security, was reorganized as a non-ministerial institution, with the Ministry of Internal Affairs becoming the Police of the Republic of Armenia.
