Deputy Mayor of Gyumri City resigns

Deputy Mayor of Armenia’s Gyumri city, Gagik Manukyan, today announced about his resignation and said he was going to open a lawyer’s office.

“There is no need to link my resignation with my alleged dismissal. There has always been mutual understanding between [Gyumri mayor] Samvel Balasanyan and me both during my work at the City Hall and before that,” said Mr Manukyan.

He added that the situation has ripened for him to move to another job and he has already discussed the issue with the Gyumri mayor.
