YEREVAN. – The ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) member Hovhannes Sahakyan will become RPA Faction Secretary at the National assembly (NA), well-informed sources told Armenian

To note, the RPA Executive Body convened a session Friday, during which the makeup of Armenia’s new Cabinet of Ministers was determined. And in line with this decision, capital city Yerevan’s former Mayor Gagik Beglaryan is appointed Transport and Communication Minister, and, as a result, Sahakyan, who was 110th in the RPA’s proportional election list, became an MP.   

And just like in the previous NA, Galust Sahakyan will head the RPA Faction in this NA, too.
