In accordance with article 21 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Declaration “On the Rights of Indigenous Peoples” since 2013, the Republic of Western Armenia (the State of Armenia) has formed legitimate State authorities – the National Assembly (Parliament), the Government and the institution of the Presidency.

In November 2013 elections of deputies of the National Assembly (Parliament) of Western Armenia were held on the Internet for the first time in the world, which were held with universal and equal suffrage by free and secret ballot.

17,837 voters from 41 countries took part in the elections, 64 deputies of the National Assembly (Parliament) of Western Armenia were elected.

From September 1st to 5th the elections of the 2nd convocation of the National Assembly (Parliament) of Western Armenia were held, in which 51,505 voters from 47 countries of the world participated and 101 deputies were elected by a single list.

The rule of law, acts and legitimacy, the protection of Armenians and the country are extremely important principles and processes, but they are insufficient unless actions are taken to implement and realize the rights given to the Armenian people. At present many people know that during the Paris Peace Conference a number of decisions were made regarding the inalienable and irrevocable rights of the Armenian people.
