OEK offered three ministerial portfolios

A senior representative of the Country of Law Party (OEK) has issued a statement in response to an article “Is OEK Becoming Opposition?” published in Haykakan Zhamanak daily.

“I officially announce that during the meeting with Serzh Sargsyan, OEK was offered three ministerial portfolios in the newly-formed government, hence the information given in the article cannot correspond to reality.

Whether OEK will join the coalition government or not is not conditioned by ministerial portfolios, rather, it will be purely a political decision which will be taken during the meeting of the OEK political council. Following the meeting, we shall make a statement for media,” said OEK Vice-Chairman, lawmaker Hovhannes Margaryan.
