YEREVAN, February 7. /ARKA/. Formation of a new government after the presidential vote in Armenia and possible staff changes have not been discussed yet, Armenian prime-minister, vice-chairman of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) Tigran Sargsyan told reporters as quoted by Novosti-Armenia Agency.
The head of the government refrained from commenting on whether or not he will continue in his position and advised reporters “to wait a little bit more”.
Sargsyan also said that the RPA is ready to discuss possible coalition with Prosperous Armenia party and other political forces if they wish.
On December 12, 2012, leader of Prosperous Armenia Gagik Tsarukyan said he will not run for president. He also said he will not support any candidate in the elections.
Allegedly, the two parties may set up a coalition after the presidential vote.
Before the parliamentary elections, Prosperous Armenia was part of the ruling coalition. The party held four minister posts in the previous cabinet and the vice-speaker’s position in the parliament.
Armenia’s presidential elections are scheduled for February 18. -0-
