I’m truly surprised by that statement and wouldn’t rush to say anything until I find out from the Prime Minister. This is what head of the Bright Armenia Party’s faction Edmon Marukyan told journalists at the National Assembly on 16 April, touching upon Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s statement that Armenia has created 50,000 new jobs.
“There will be a question-and-answer session in parliament tomorrow, and we will discuss the issue of layoffs. I believe we can discuss the issue of layoffs in light of the creation of jobs and receive information about that from the reporting government official. If I’m not mistaken, some of those 50,000 jobs are jobs that are out of the shadow,” Marukyan said.
