Anahit Bakhshyan, Deputy Director of the National Institute of

and Science Armen Ashotyan.
In her letter, Ms Bakhshyan responded to Mr Ashotyan’s arguments,
stating that presidential candidates’ meetings with higher school

“Yes, it was thanks to Mr Ashotyan that I was appointed to this

Ms Bakhshyan said.

Mr Ashotyan himself expressed his regret over her not being an MP now.
