Tigran Avinyan Elected Yerevan Deputy Mayor
Yerevan’s Municipal Council today elected former Armenian Deputy PM Tigran Avinyan as one of the Armenian capital’s deputy mayors.
The council is controlled by the pro-government My Step Faction.
Avinyan was appointed deputy prime minister in May 2018, after Nikol Pashinyan was elected prime minister.
Avinyan is a founding member of the Civil Contract party that was part of the My Step (Im Kayl) alliance that dissolved in May 2021.
The Civil Contract party says it will nominate Avinyan as its candidate for Yerevan mayor in next year’s municipal election.
