YEREVAN. – In the competition held on July 17, Diana Galoyan was elected Rector of the Armenian State University of Economics (ASUE) by two-thirds of the votes of ASUE Board members, the ASUE staff noted in a statement on Wednesday.
"According to Section 4 of Article 15 of the RA [Republic of Armenia] Law on Higher and Postgraduate Professional Education, the RA Government approves the results of the rector's election, which has not been implemented yet—more than two months after the election.
Yesterday, the staff and students of the university marched to the RA Government to get clarification on this issue, but ASUE has not received any answer so far.
We [hereby] inform that by the decision of the overwhelming majority of ASUE staff, the educational process is temporarily suspended [at the university] until D. Galoyan's appointment to the position of rector, in the manner prescribed by the law,” the statement also reads, in particular.
