Rouzanna Arakelyan to Replace ARF MP Aghvan Vardanyan
Rouzanna Arakelyan will replace ARF MP Aghvan Vardanyan in Armenia’s parliament.
Vardanyan resigned on May 3.
On May 1, when the National Assembly voted to select Armenia’s next prime minister, Vardanyan stated that he would abstain from voting.
The ARF had officially declared that its MPs would vote in favor of Nikol Pashinyan.
Vardanyan argued that he couldn’t follow the party’s directive, saying that he doesn’t follow idols and suspected that “outside powers” were influencing developments in Armenia.
