This is the first time that three Armenians are elected MPs in France, at the same time.
Co-chairman of the Coordination Council of Armenian Organizations in France (CCAF), Ara Toranian, told the above-said to Armenian News-NEWS.am.
“We are glad, we are happy that we have Armenian deputies in [French] parliament,” he said. “This means that Armenians have active participation in the country’s political life, especially considering that they are among the authorities.”
In Toranian’s words, however, solely President Emmanuel Macron’s Republic on the Move (La République En Marche (La REM)) party had Armenian MP candidates.
