Yerevan. – “It has become apparent that [the ruling Republican Party of Armenia] RPA really has believed and changed. During all intermissions of the Government program’s examination at the [National Assembly] NA, [PM] Tigran Sargsyan was at the room of his ‘partner’ [NA Speaker] Hovik Abrahamyan. [And] This is picturesque in the sense that, before, Tigran Sargsyan used to come and enter the [NA Sessions’] Hall through the common corridor and return to the Government via same route,” Hraparak daily writes.     

“Another tradition was broken on the day of the approval of the Government’s program. For numerous years, the RPA used to gather in the [ruling] coalition’s room, immediately after the voting of the Government’s program, congratulate [one another], and drink a glass of brandy. It did not happen this time.   

As they explained to us from the RPA, this was impossible purely for technical reasons, because the NA special session commenced immediately after the program’s voting, and [therefore] it was impossible to be absent from the Hall. ‘[But] We still will [have time to] drink,’ they said,” Hraparak writes.
