YEREVAN. – Today at 4:30pm, the majority My Step faction in Armenia’s parliament will hold a sitting at the office of the ruling Civil Contract Party. Hovik Aghazaryan, a member of the faction informed Armenian News-NEWS.am about this.
He added, however, that he was not aware of the issues to be discussed and was not familiar with the agenda of this meeting.
There are rumors one of the main topics of discussion will be Friday’s statement by tycoon Gagik Tsarukyan, leader of the opposition Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP) and of its parliamentary faction.
To note, the PAP on Friday held a special session of its political board, during which Tsarukyan harshly criticized the authorities. "I said a year ago that it is impossible to fulfill the promises made to the people with such a staff. I said then that we need to change 97% [of that staff], but now I say we need to change everyone. The people are not a testing ground," Tsarukyan had stated, in particular.
