ARMENIA’S PM TO BE SACKED? – NEWSPAPER
October 24, 2012 | 06:47
YEREVAN. – Even though Armenian Premier Tigran Sargsyan’s entourage
spreads news that “it will be Tigran Sargsyan who will work as PM until
[the presidential elections in] 2018,” the opposing forces circulate
the contrary information, Hraparak daily reports.
“[These opposing forces claim that] It is very conceivable that a
prime ministerial change will be made prior to the [2013 presidential]
elections. And a new candidacy-[that of State Committee of Real
Estate] Cadastre chief, Yerevan’s former Mayor Yerevand Zakharyan-is
added to the names [already being circulated] in the [political]
scene-[namely, Parliament Speaker] Hovik Abrahamyan, the two Karen
Karapetyan [one of whom is capital city Yerevan’s previous Mayor],
[Deputy PM and Territorial Administration Minister] Armen Gevorgyan,
and Armenia’s former PM Armen Sargsyan. This bespeaks the continuation
of a search for a PM at the Presidential Palace.
The well-informed source, however, says the appointment will be
unexpected and [it will be] a name that has never been discussed to
this day,” Hraparak writes.
