 Armenian Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan's resignation was his voluntary decision, President Serzh Sargsyan said during the April 4 meeting at the Central Bank of Armenia. 

The press service of the Armenian President quotes Serzh Sargsyan as saying, "When we were discussing the issue of his resignation yesterday, I said that the Prime Minister sent in his resignation as early as March 3, but we did not accept it in order to demonstrate that we are not under pressure of some political force.  We want to inform our partners and our public of the situation".

According to the President, a 6-year period is a long term for the Prime Minister given that those years were rather complicated, difficult and ungrateful. He expressed confidence that the positive results of the Government's activity will be observed in 20 years.     

As regards formation of a new government, Armenian President pointed out that the new government must ensure economic growth and continued reforms and it also must restore the public confidence in these reforms and the Government. "These are the minimum tasks the new government must fulfill. I think there will be considerable changes in the new government. We should take a fresh look at the current problems", he said.    

To recall, on April 3 Armenian Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan resigned from the post of Prime Minister during the Thursday meeting of the Supreme Body of the Republican Party of Armenia.  President Serzh Sargsyan has accepted the resignation. In compliance with Article 55 of the Constitution of the Republic of Armenia, President Serzh Sargsyan is to appoint a new prime minister within 10 days.  Afterwards, the new staff of the Government will be formed within 20 days. All the ministers automatically become acting ministers before the new premier is appointed.
