YEREVAN. – Several names are being circulated for the post of Armenia’s future National Assembly (NA) Speaker, Irates De Facto writes in its “They Say” section. 

“The main assertion is that Samvel Nikoyan will maintain his post. According to the next opinion, [the incumbent Education and Science Minister] Armen Ashotyan will become NA Speaker. 

And those who are better informed claim that the current Presidential Chief of Staff Vigen Sargsyan will most likely become Speaker and ‘chair’ the parliament, where there will be numerous interesting faces.  

[But] The latter [i.e., Sargsyan] was very surprised when we conveyed this news to him before its time,” Irates De Facto writes.
