Yerevan Council of Elders nominates Acting Mayor as new Mayor
During Tuesday's session of Armenian capital Yerevan's Council of Elders, the ruling coalition's Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) Faction leader Derenik Dumanyan nominated Acting Mayor Taron Margaryan as the new Mayor of Yerevan. And in his turn, ruling coalition's Prosperous Armenia Party Faction leader Gurgen Gasparyan stated they have no nominees of their own and they support Margaryan's nomination.
The Council will soon start with the secret ballot for the new Mayor of Yerevan.
Also, Taron Margaryan made brief remarks, noting he would work more eagerly and promised to justify the hopes of Yerevan residents.
As NEWS.am informed earlier, RPA had decided to nominate as Mayor, the city's First Deputy Mayor, Taron Margaryan. And during RPA Board session, on October 31, Armenia's President and RPA Chairman Serzh Sargsyan had nominated Margaryan's candidacy.
To note, Yerevan's former Mayor Karen Karapetyan had resigned from office in late October, and Taron Margaryan replaced him as Acting Mayor, until Tuesday's elections.
