The article analyses the peculiarities of institutional transformation and political processes in Armenia in 1990—2012. During the first years of independence the president as a political actor was dominating within the political system. The main trend was the presidentialisation of the system, simultaneously the role of the legislature was decreasing with certain marginalization of the latter and consequently the system functioned less democratically. The analysis of the authorities of political subjects demonstrates that power concentration within presidential institution negatively influences independent functioning of the parliament, while more powerful legislatures provide possibilities for more balanced relations between the branches and more articulated role of executive power.
