No Incidents of Corruption During University Entrance Exams, Says Armenian PM
The Armenian government today approved a draft law on making amendments and additions to the RA Law on State Inspectorate of Education, which, according to the Sargsyan administration, is dictated by the need to rectify misinterpretations and shortcomings in certain provisions of the legal acts regulating the state control process in the educational sector, inspection reform and reduction of the risks of corruption in the education system.
Regarding this legislative initiative, Armenian Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan said:
“Though in terms of public perception we have a 5% improvement, corruption is gradually decreasing and this was fostered by the organizing of university entrance exams in 2011, the problem continues to remain serious. This year was unprecedented: there was not a single case of corruption recorded, we haven’t had any complaints and there was a fair and honest process. As a result, we have some progress. Yet at the same time, we’re not yet in a a good state and we have serious tasks. These legislative amendments are necessary so that we have an anti-corruption, complete and unified system.”
