Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian says he supports constitutional reforms that would change the system of government to a parliamentary form of government.

The strategy for the transition to a parliamentary system of government was proposed by a special commission for constitutional reform.

Sarkisian instructed a government commission to start talks with political parties and draw up a report on proposals and recommendations for the transition.

The constitutional reforms will be put to a vote in a nationwide referendum.

No date has been set yet for the referendum.
