UPDATED-The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Defense and Security, after failing to secure a quorum earlier in the evening held a late night emergency session and approved the draft law on the military. It will now be sent to the National Assembly for a final vote.

 

For the past four days, university students in Armenia have been protesting a new bill that will shift arrangements for mandatory military deferment. EVN Report's Roubina Margossian spoke with Davit Petrosyan, one of the student organizers, during the rally on November 10 in front of the country's National Assembly.
