ArmInfo. Within the next 2 months the Minister of Labor and Social Affairs Mane Tandilyan will present a new bill on the accumulative pension system. She told journalists about this after the meeting of the government today, stressing that the bill will envisage non-mandatory component of the pension system.
''The interests of the state are priority for me and I strive for introduction of the system so that it is acceptable for large grops of society'', she stated. At the same time Tandilyan considers that by staying on the post of Minister she will manage to solve the tasks related to the system more efficiently.
As Tandilyan pointed out, the document, which will be prepared with the support of experts and presented on the portal of public discussions e-draft, will envisage various ways to implement the system. "The principle of voluntariness is also envisaged," she said, refraining from commenting on exactly how and for what group of people the mandatory component will be maintained.
Following the results of discussions with the public in the fall, the bill will be submitted to the parliament. As early as January 1, 2019, the new law is expected to be put into effect. In addition, Mane Tandilyan will remain in the "Bright Armenia "party. "Leaving the post of minister, I wanted to leave the party, because it was the party that put me in the government, but now if I stay in the government, leaving the party makes no sense," she said.
Earlier ArmInfo informed that Mane Tandilyan will continue her work as Minister of Labor and Social Affairs. As Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated today, they will continue working together with Tandilyan to improve the pension system. According to him, today, as before, he does not doubt that the accumulative pension system needs serious reform. In this context, the prime minister hopes for the assistance of all interested departments.
To note, the Minister of Labor and Social Affairs, Mane Tandilyan signed in for resignation on June 12. She justified her decision by a contradiction with the current Cabinet in the implementation of mandatory funded pension system.
