Pashinyan says some Armenian officials could keep posts in provisional govt
YEREVAN. April 26 (Interfax) - Some members of the current government may be included in the provisional government that will be formed after the election of a new prime minister, MP Nikol Pashinyan, the leader of the protest movement, said.
"We cannot let a corrupt system, the Republican Party, run Armenia again. That's out of the question. The post of prime minister is vital to us because power is concentrated in the hands of the prime minister. But I don't rule out that some members of the current government could be included in the provisional government," Pashinyan said in an interview with Armenian television channel Kentron.
At the same time, the opposition activist said he is ready to discuss with representatives of the Republican Party the distribution of seats in various commissions and institutions that are connected to the organization of parliamentary elections.
"We are saying that the main institution is the prime minister. We are ready to discuss the distribution of seats in other institutions," he said.
