YEREVAN. – Zhoghovurd daily of Armenia writes: According to Zhoghovurd daily, a noteworthy incident took place between the Yerevan Council of Elders’ [majority] My Step faction and Mayor Hayk Marutyan, whose cause was the mayor's wife Iva, a Czech by nationality.

The thing is that after Marutyan's election as mayor, she has begun to quite actively get involved in her husband's affairs, and even spends most of her time in the municipality.

In essence, she is doing the job of an adviser or assistant to the mayor of Yerevan, negotiating with different people, mediating, meeting with candidates on appointment matters. And, recently, members of the Council of Elders invited Hayk Marutyan to a discussion and raised the specific question that his wife should no longer interfere with the official functions of the mayor. Marutyan listened to them and offered to hold a discussion also with her wife the next day and listen to the latter.
