42 individuals have applied for the job of executive director of the Hayastan-All Armenian Fund.
The post has been vacant ever since the Fund’s former executive director, Ara Vardanyan, was charged with embezzlement in July.
In a statement, the Fund says that interim Executive Director Bedros Terzian will head a committee to select the organization’s next director at a vote scheduled for September 10.
The committee will be comprised of the presidents of Armenia and Artsakh, representatives of the Armenian prime minister, and Albert Boghosian, a member of the Fund’s Board of Trustees.
Applications have been received from Armenia, Russia, the U.S., France, Great Britain, Lebanon and Switzerland.
