Hovik Abrahamyan does not want to become Armenian Prime Minister.
After the session held by the Republican Party of Armenia's (HHK) executive body today, ex-speaker of the National Assembly Hovik Abrahamyan today didn't confirm the rumors that he would be heading the newly elected National Assembly.
Nevertheless, he underlined that upon his return to the National Assembly, he would set restrictions on the procedure of journalists' entrance to the National Assembly, which has been simplified by the order of the current NA Chairman Samvel Nikoyan.
When asked if he would be the new NA Chairman in any case, Abrahamyan simply smiled.
Hovik Abrahamyan ruled out the likelihood of his appointment as Prime Minister.
"Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan is doing a great job," mentioned Abrahamyan, adding that even if is offered to be Prime Minister, he will reject.
When asked whether the statement issued by leader of Prosperous Armenia Party (BHK) Gagik Tsarukyan meant that the BHK was positioning itself as an opposition party, Vice-Chairman of the HHK Galust Sahakyan said:
"We will see the BHK's strategy over time. In any case, in his statement Tsarukyan said the party would be constructive in the political field."
We remind that last Thursday, Galust Sahakyan declared that the BHK had to decide if it was going to be pro-government or opposition.
