Yerevan November 3
Tatevik Shahunyan. The epic of the provision of housing to the third Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan has not ended yet.
As the head of the government's office Eduard Aghajanyan told journalists, according to the law, the state is obliged to provide housing for the retired president, but all the options offered by the government have so far been rejected by Serzh Sargsyan, who, without waiting for the "proper" offer, left the "government mansions" and moved to the mansion of his son-in-law in the village of Jrvezh.
However, according to Agadzhanyan, the issue was not resolved by this, since the law obliges the state to provide housing for the retired president, and this requirement must be fulfilled. "I think that the question can be settled as follows – either Serzh Sargsyan refuses in written form the claims to receive housing from the state, or the state acquires housing for him, and then he himself decides whether to live in it or use it in any other way" Agadzhanyan explained.
To note, claiming the post of Prime Minister, the retired President Serzh Sargsyan also claimed the ownership of the mansion in the "government mansions" where he lived during the last 10 years of his presidency. However, after riots began in April, Sargsyan abandoned his idea, obviously thinking that this would calm the passions. After that, the government offered him various mansions, however, Sargsyan, under specious excuses, refused them, and eventually moved to the mansion of his son-in-law, without waiting for the coveted proposal. -l–
