Armenia’s former MP, businessman Khachik Manukyan, passed away Friday at the age of 60. Sargis Avetisyan, the prefect of Manukyan’s native village of Mastara, told about this to Armenian News-NEWS.am.
Avetisyan noted that Manukyan had died of lung cancer.
He had undergone treatment in Germany, Georgia, and Armenia in recent years.
Manukyan was a National Assembly (NA) MP, from 2003 to 2012.
He was also elected as a member of the 6th NA from the Tsarukyan bloc, but he had given up his parliamentary seat.
Since 1993, Khachik Manukyan was also the head of a business enterprise which includes a well-known poultry factory farm in Armenia.
