Premier “fights” against former Yerevan Mayor
YEREVAN. – The ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) is facing new problems with respect to distributing the ministerial positions, Yerkir daily writes.
“Even though the Cabinet will not undergo significant changes, according to Yerkir’s information, PM Tigran Sargsyan has some concerns in connection with the new Government. Sargsyan wishes to see as ministers those who are easily manageable and directly subjected to him.
In this context, [and] according to the news we received, Tigran Sargsyan is opposing [capital city Yerevan’s former Mayor] Gagik Beglaryan’s being appointed minister. The most likely [for Beglaryan] is the office of the Territorial Administration Minister, and this worries Tigran Sargsyan the most.
Our sources close to the RPA informed that he is trying to keep [serving Minister] Armen Gevorgyan in this position.
Incidentally, Beglaryan is not conducting a serious ‘battle’ for the post,” Yerkir writes.
