"National Revival" Party of Nagorno-Karabakh plans to organize schools on international relations and human rights

During the spring months of this year, the "National Revival" Party in Nagorno-Karabakh is going to organize two schools on the topics of international relations, human rights and civil society. Iyk Khanumyan, the party chairman, said that any person, regardless of age or political affiliation - everyone can become a trainee of the schools.

According to Khanumyan, today the "National Revival" has 530 members from all the regions of Nagorno-Karabakh and over 1000 registered supporters. During the year of its activities, the new party managed to create a platform for public debate, which was earlier absent in the country, said the chairman.

The idea of founding the "National Revival" Party emerged after in 2010 Nagorno-Karabakh held "uncontested elections to the National Assembly and after the same uncontested early elections were held there in 2012 in the Martakert and Shushi Districts," Iyk Khanumyan said at a press conference in Stepanakert.
