Armen Sarkissian - Armenia's New President

Armenia’s National Assembly, by a vote of 90 to 10, has elected Armen Sarkissian as the country’s next president.

Sarkissian, the only candidate for the post, was the nominee of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia and its junior coalition partner, the ARF.

“As I have said in the past, I will invest my long years of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to fully execute the obligations of the Armenian presidency and will fully serve our citizens and our people. I expect your assistance as well,” Sarkissian said, addressing the parliament.
