Sargsyan replaced Sargsyan as the President of Armenia

38
The Parliament of the Republic of Armenia voted on the candidacy of the President of the country. Deputies of the National Assembly of Armenia elected Armen Sargsyan, the representative of the ruling Republican party, with a majority of votes (90 “for” and 10 “against”, 1 bulletin was invalid).


Sargsyan replaced Sargsyan as the President of Armenia


Armen Sargsyan replaced Serzh Sargsyan at the presidency, who has been at the head of state since April 2008. Earlier, Sargsyan personally presented Sargsyan as his successor, in effect providing him with the support of representatives of the majority of the parliamentary corps. Serzh Sargsyan himself had no right to be elected for a third term under the country's constitution.

It should be noted that for the first time Armenia stories holds presidential elections not in the course of a popular vote, but within the parliament. Now (under the new legislation), the President of Armenia is elected for seven years and is not eligible for re-election.

It is noteworthy that Armen Sargsyan was the only candidate for the presidency. In fact, the term “head of state” itself in Armenia now changes its meaning, assuming that the president is now only a formal head. The fact is that Armenia switched to the format of a parliamentary republic and de jure the status of the president is lower than that of the head of government.

In 1976, Sargsyan graduated from the Physics Department of Yerevan State University, he is a candidate of physical and mathematical sciences. He worked at YSU, Moscow State University, as well as at universities in Germany, Greece, USA, Britain. In 90, he occupied the post of Ambassador of Armenia to the UK, then in the Benelux countries and the Vatican. In 1996-1997, he served as Prime Minister of Armenia.

He worked as an advisor in such companies as Alcatel, Telefonica, British Petrolium, and others. He has state and foreign awards (including the Vatican's Great Cross award of the Order of St. Gregory the Great).

            And I would have generally joined them to Russia, like Tatarstan or Chechnya with Ingushetia and Dagestan. There are 9 million inhabitants, although most of them live in Russia and other countries.

        The status of the President of Armenia has now dropped below the status of the Prime Minister, and now, according to a previously developed scenario, Serzh Sargsyan is smoothly transferred to the Prime Minister’s chair. Only the position has changed, but Serge has remained hi

    With democracy in Armenia is better than in Az-not!
    But something tells me here there is a catch, but it is better to leave the Armenians themselves.
    Here we have our problems in view of the eternal president, who recently made his wife vice president, and the ministers have not changed since the 90s, in the best case, 2003-2005 were set. An exception is the Minister of Defense and State Security. What can I say about mother nature. But even in this case, a new generation has already been raised, which often flashes in the news chronicles.

        The depth of the Russian depths? Where is the logic? where is the causal cycle of the sentence?
        All the same, a bot, probably it’s Kiselev’s programming that heard the word democracy, answer the adversary “soon you will know Western democracy”)))) We don’t have it.

            Nowhere! But somewhere is relatively better, somewhere worse. In Russia there is more democracy than in Azerbaijan, but less than in the country X. Everything is known in comparison.

                I'd rather try to change something with my only miserable voice.
                True, he took and rescheduled the election a couple of months earlier, and there were no candidates who could not prepare.

            They are just in proportion.
            Everything ingenious is simple. Georgia does not pursue a pro-Russian but anti-Russian policy, the media policy of the Russian Federation is quickly found there. And Az-en leads, although not pro-Russian, but also does not conduct anti-Russian, and here they do not find a corrupt official.
            Europeans, for example, find it very reasonably, but if Az-en changed their policies in their favor, they would go blind and their vision would return to Moscow.
            Everyone lies without exception, politics however.

              The funny thing is, in Russia no one cares about Georgia .... moreover, it is not mentioned anywhere in the media, so whoever steals or doesn’t steal is Georgian’s business .. This also applies to Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan , Kazakhstan and more ...
              And with officials of other states (say Azerbaijan) - Russia communicates politely and correctly - if they do not lunge towards Russia - And this is normal !!

                At one time, it was the case, now Ukraine is in fashion, the reason is clear.
                Anti-Russian policy of Ukraine. The whole bacchanalia which is happening in Ukraine corruption, etc., is happening in any CIS country.
                As with Turkey, they are helpers of terrorists on the first channel, tomatoes, tourists.
                One fine day, the Turkish stream and they are not so terrorists, because grandmother is at stake.
                No one cares what the people think, they create public opinion. Today is politely correct, tomorrow we'll see something else.
                In fact, they are all the same, circumstances just change! And mother don’t cry for such examples.

                  You know, Ukraine is certainly a pain point, but everyone is tired of it .. Really! I won’t ask anyone about Ukraine - they don’t give a damn about what will be there! The only one you feel sorry for is the people of Donbass! The Russian media artificially supports the information field about Ukraine, and nobody cares ...
                  But Turkey cannot enter into a friendly alliance with Russia - this is what Turkey understands, but so far both states have common goals ..

      Generally a competent man, has close ties with pro-Western politicians and businessmen. I think it will be reformatted in place. In any case, better than the former "co-operatives." We will wait for the appointment of the Prime Minister.

    A distinctive feature of all that has taken place in the election world over the past year is that no one yells that the Kremlin is interfering in the election.
    Although, first of all, I recall the imperishable B. Grachevsky from Yeralash:
    -Are you twins?
    -Twins!
    -Twins?
    -No, not twins!
    “Come on, are you twins?”
    -Twins!
    -So twins?
    -No, not twins! We are triplets!

    I wonder how they will distinguish them - only by name? Actually, this is the same last name, spoken in different dialects of Armenian - but is written it is the same in Armenian, just the letter "gim" in the western dialect is pronounced "kim"

    Well, given that Sargsyan himself used to be Sargsyan, this indicates the stability of the course. ;-)
