YEREVAN. – The ruling coalition’s Republican Party of Armenia (RPA)
members, together with President and RPA leader Serzh Sargsyan, on
Sunday examined the composition of the future Government, Zhoghovurd
daily writes, referring to its well-informed sources.
“Sargsyan noted that, after the [upcoming National Assembly (NA)]
elections, considerable changes will be in need in the future
Government. This notwithstanding, according to the preliminary version,
PM Tigran Sargsyan will still maintain his post.
Our sources say the RPA is discontent with Justice Minister Hrayr
Tovmasyan’s activities, and that is why they decided to appoint him
ambassador to any country in the future.
It was deemed necessary that Diaspora Minister Hranush Hakobyan and
Education and Science Minister Armen Ashotyan will replace their
ministerial portfolio with the deputy’s mandate.
It is noteworthy that RPA also discussed [the coalition’s Orinats
Yerkir (Rule of Law) Party] RLP Deputy Chairman, Emergency Situations
Minister Armen Yeritsyan’s future. According to Zhoghovurd’s
information, he will be appointed newly-formed Minister of Internal
We attempted to clarify this information from RPA Spokesperson [and
NA Deputy Speaker] Eduard Sharmazanov, who, in essence, did not deny
the news, and said they will design the future Government’s programs
after the elections,” Zhoghovurd writes.
