Today evening there will be an announcement on Armen Ashotyan's resignation
The Republican Party of Armenia convenes a session of Executive body today in the evening. It is expected that it will be announced about the coalition of Republican Party of Armenia and Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) and the distribution of offices. They say that there will be an announcement on Armen Ashotyan's resignation.
The Republican Party of Armenia was always delaying the announcement about the forming of coalition with Armenian Revolutionary Federation and distribution of offices as there were still some disagreements with that power. They say that the government expects new and reliable candidates from ARF: two or three candidates for minister’s offices and two for Marzpet's offices but not all the candidates represented by ARF are approved by the government. According to the news, Serj Sargsyan does not want to see those officials who have not worked effectively and have not progressed in their fields before.
It is expected that today there will be an announcement that the office of Regional government, the Ministry of Economics and the Ministry of Education and Science as well as the offices of Marzpets of Shirak and Aragatsotn are given to ARF.
According to the expectations ARF will represent the former Minister of Agriculture David Loqyan for the office of Regional government, Levon Mkrtchyan for office of the Ministry of Education and Science and Artsvik Minasyan for the office of the Ministry of Economics.
