Today Armenian Parliament voted and elected a new Human Rights Defender. Sixty-nine out of 107 Members of Parliament participated in the vote to elect Anahit Manasyan as Armenia’s Human Rights Defender.

She was nominated for the position by the ruling Civil Contract faction.

Manasyan studied at the Faculty of Law of YSU, received bachelor’s and master’s degrees, and took postgraduate courses. In 2016, she studied at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy of Tufts University.

The newly elected Ombudsman previously worked as Adviser to the Prosecutor General.

The position of the Human Rights Defender had been vacant since Kristinne Grigoryan quit in January 2023 after just one year in office.
