Next PM will not be BHK member – Stepan Margaryan

Stepan Margaryan, a lawmaker of the Prosperous Armenia Party (BHK), excludes that the Armenian government might be headed by a person affiliated with his party.

“Is it possible that you become the next prime minister?” In reply to a journalist’s question, Mr Margaryan said, “I do not know, no.”

Armenia’s Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan announced his resignation on April 3. Under the country’s constitution, the president is to appoint the next prime minister within ten days, who shall form a new cabinet within 20 days.
