Consultations on candidature of 13th prime minister of Armenia start at presidential palace: ARFD and Prosperous Armenia come to meet with President Sargsyan

  • by Ashot Safaryan

  • Thursday, April 10, 17:50

President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan has started consultations with representatives of political forces concerning the candidature of the 13th prime minister of Armenia.

 

According to ArmInfo's correspondent, the first to come to meet with the President were representatives of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation Dashnaktsutyun.

 

Earlier the head of the ARFD's parliamentary group Armen Rustamyan told ArmInfo that they would appear at the meeting with seven proposals on how to bring the country out of the crisis. "But even if the proposals are accepted, we will not still agree to become part of the ruling coalition. Nor will this mean that we will support Sargsyan's candidate," Rustamyan said.  Prosperous Armenia Party is represented by former Foreign Minister Vartan Oskanian and MP Stepan Margaryan.

 

Earlier Spokesman of the party's leader Gagik Tsarukyan Iveta Tonoyan told ArmInfo that Tsarukyan was also going to attend the consultations so as to familiarize the President with Armenia's urgent problems and his vision of how to solve them, while Margaryan told journalists that the party was not going to join the ruling coalition.

 

Today the President is also to meet with representatives of the coalition Orinats Yerkir party.

 

In the evening the Supreme Body of the ruling Republican Party will make known the name of the 13th prime minister.

 

The most probable candidate is Speaker of the Armenian Parliament Hovik Abrahamyan. The other possible candidates are Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan and Deputy Prime Minister Armen Gevorgyan.

 

The Armenian National Congress and Heritage Party have refused to take part in the consultations with the President.
