YEREVAN. – Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan explained the difference between his premiership and the premiership of ex-president and ex-PM Serzh Sargsyan.
When asked to compare Sargsyan’s “PM suit” and Pashinyan’s “PM suit”, the current Armenian premier said he “had renovated” the governance of Serzh Sargsyan.
The constitutional reforms of 2015 were dubbed by the media a “super-prime minister’s suit” due to the wide range of powers granted to the Prime Minister.
“The difference between my ‘suit’ and the ‘suit’ of Serzh Sargsyan is that there are no billions in my “pockets” that can be spent on fraud, buying offices, intimidating people, there are no 20-25 media outlets in these pockets. Those media outlets were and remain in the “pockets” of the former corrupt regime,” he added.
