Issue subject to regulation
Currently, the decisions of councils of elders and heads of communities in the Republic of Armenia are electronically posted in PDF format on various official websites, particularly on the websites of relevant marzpetarans of the Republic of Armenia. The name of the link of a legal act mainly indicates the number and date of adoption of the legal act, which makes it impossible to use the search engine with other parameters. There is no single unified platform for publishing the decisions of councils of elders and heads of communities in the Republic of Armenia electronically, as is the case with other legal acts (www.arlis.am). This makes it difficult for users to find the legal acts they need.
Ensuring accessibility of decisions of councils of elders and heads of communities, providing a search function (simple and advanced search), ensuring usability, increasing transparency of activities of communities.
