Armenian PM To Keep Job

President Serzh Sarkisian announced late on Thursday his decision to reappoint Prime Minister Tigran Sarkisian and two other key ministers to his new cabinet that will be formed in the next few weeks.

Acting in accordance with Armenia’s constitution, Tigran Sarkisian and all 18 government ministers tendered their resignation hours after the president was sworn in for a second term on April 9.

The constitution gives the head of state 10 days to appoint a prime minister. He has another 20 days to name the cabinet members.

Serzh Sarkisian presented his decision to reappoint the premier as well as Defense Minister Seyran Ohanian and Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian at a meeting of the governing body of his Republican Party (HHK). The board promptly endorsed the move.
