Election 2012: President starts campaign by strengthening his team

A kind of regrouping of forces is taking place in Armenia in the run-up to next spring’s parliamentary elections. A series of high-profile resignations/firings have begun, with an apparent aim at strengthening the team of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA).

On Tuesday evening, the RPA Board decided to appoint Parliament Speaker Hovik Abrahamyan chief of the RPA election headquarters. In this view, Abrahamyan is to step down as chairman of the National Assembly. Earlier, Karen Karapetyan resigned as mayor of Yerevan and Chief of the Armenian Police Alik Sargsyan was dismissed from his post. RPA representatives say some other dismissals and resignations are also possible.
