Galust Sahakyan says he was not begged to become parliament speaker

Galust Sahakyan, one of the candidates nominated for the position of parliament speaker, today told reporters that he was not begged to become Speaker of the National Assembly.

Asked whether he would live in the summer house house allocated by the state, Mr Sahakyan said if there is no need, he will live in his house but he cannot move around without bodyguards as required by law.
