Armenian Opposition Critical Of PM=?UTF-8?B?4oCZ?=s Reappointment

Armenia’s leading opposition groups on Friday scoffed at President Serzh Sarkisian’s decision to reappoint Tigran Sarkisian as prime minister, saying that it heralds no major changes in government policy demanded by many people.

By contrast, the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (HHK) defended the move after its governing body led by President Serzh Sarkisian approved it at a late-night meeting on Thursday. HHK spokesman Eduard Sharmazanov insisted that despite certain “shortcomings” Tigran Sarkisian’s cabinet has been largely successful in meeting challenges facing the country.

Naira Zohrabian of the Prosperous Armenia Party (BHK), the second largest in parliament, claimed the opposite, accusing the government of “leading the country to deadlock” and citing “worsening” poverty and unemployment. “If this is considered a good result that warrants the reappointment of this person, then any logical explanation is simply meaningless,” she told RFE/RL’s Armenian service (Azatutyun.am).
