During today’s session, the Central Electoral Commission of Armenia drew up a record to strip Arsen Julfalakyan of the ruling My Step bloc of his parliamentary mandate based on his application.
The Commission also approved the record on transferring this mandate to Narek Ghahramanyan, who is listed after Arsen Julfalakyan on the proportional electoral list of the ruling My Step bloc.
The record will be sent to the National Assembly of Armenia.
Earlier, Speaker of the National Assembly Ararat Mirzoyan had issued a statement on Arsen Julfalakyan’s announcement about dropping his mandate. Julfalakyan had stated that he was dropping his mandate due to fundamental disagreements with Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sport of Armenia Arayik Harutyunyan.
