I won’t make any statement because our political team hasn’t held any discussion. This is what Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly of Armenia Alen Simonyan told reporters today, touching upon the news in presses according to which Deputy Prime Minister Tigran Avinyan will be replaced by current Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sport Arayik Harutyunyan after the end of the state of emergency.
“It’s clear that there is a problem in the media, and today, most media outlets are serving the political interests of different people. Thus, it would be wrong to comment on every publication,” he said.
When asked why the parliamentary committee held a closed session with former head of the Higher Qualification Committee Smbat Gogyan and the deputy minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sport, if there was no problem, Alen Simonyan said he doesn’t know why the session was closed, but it is necessary to understand that everyone can resign from office and added that he believes the issue related to Gogyan will be solved soon.
