YEREVAN. – Certain Russian circles are attempting to convince Armenia’s President Serzh Sargsyan to choose “one of the two Karens” as the country’s new PM, Haykakan Zhamanak daily writes.  

“This refers to [capital city] Yerevan’s former Mayor, Vice President of Gazprombank [of Russia], Karen Karapetyan, and Serzh Sargsyan’s former Chief if Staff, [National Assembly] NA MP, Karen Karapetyan.   

Our sources attest that the Prosperous Armenia [Party] is not against this option either. 

And according to our sources, Serzh Sargsyan has not yet made his final decision.

The serving PM’s [Tigran Sargsyan] candidacy is acceptable for him for the international ‘face.’ But he is concerned by Tigran Sargsyan’s low rating within the republic,” Haykakan Zhamanak writes.
