YEREVAN. – Hraparak daily of Armenia writes: Every fifth on the government [electoral] list [for the snap parliamentary elections on June 20] will be a new person.

It is noteworthy that [acting PM] Nikol Pashinyan, who once fought fiercely against the merging of business and oligarchy with the government, has decided to add pro-government businessmen to his [electoral] list.

The 5th number on the list will be businessman Khachatur Sukiasyan, who won the most from the change of power in 2018, and the 10th number—[United Labor Party chairman] Gurgen Arsenyan.

None of [ruling] My Step [bloc] members still knows what place he will occupy on the electoral list; Pashinyan has decided to keep it a secret until the last day, May 25-26.
