On May 23 on the evening air of the Second Armenian TV Channel twenty-sixth
“Press Club” show was issued. The cycle is organized by Yerevan Press Club under
a homonymous project, supported by the OSI Network Media Program.

The representatives of the leading media and journalistic associations of Armenia
discussed constitutional reforms in Armenia, in general, and the parliamentary
adoption of the draft amendments to the Main Law of the country in the first
hearing, in particular. The program participants expect the main subjects on
the pages of newspapers and the air this week to be: celebration of the First
Republic Day on May 28; visit of the Venice Commission members to Armenia; the
last four-day sitting of the spring session of the Parliament; currency exchange
fluctuations. Of international affairs, in the opinion of “Press Club” participants,
the Armenian media will primarily focus on the situation in Azerbaijan, after
the dispersion of the opposition rally in Baku on May 21. Armenian media will
also continue to analyze negotiations on Karabagh resolution held between the
Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan on May 15 in Warsaw and the response to
the meeting of the media in the two countries.
