Renowned weightlifter Yuri Vardanyan a Governor?

08:18, 23.07.2009 Region: Armenia Theme: Politics

Marzpet of Shirak Region Lida Nanyan will be dismissed within the next few days. The famous weight-lifter Yuri Vardanyan currently Adviser to the President will be appointed to the marzpet post, NEWS.am informs.

The reason of Nanyan’s discharge is the conflicts with Mayor of Gyumri Vardan Ghoukasyan, as they are unable to work well together.

Commenting on the rumours of her possible dismissal Shirak marzpet said, “This is not my patrimonial post, if they discharge me – I will accept it, otherwise I am ready to keep on working. What’s up, what’s the problem? I do not want to comment on some talks, that I will be dismissed, it’s even ridiculous. What does this mean? If I fail to do my job, they will remove me stating next day reasoning that I do not manage my job well. If they decide to do so, they will do it”.
