Yerevan Municipality Refutes Rumors that Mayor Margaryan Has Resigned

Rumors that Yerevan Mayor Taron Margaryan has tendered his resignation were refuted by Artur Gevorgyan, who heads the Yerevan Municipality’s Department of Public Affairs.

Earlier today, Yelk parliamentary faction head Davit Khazhakyan told reporters that Margaryan was ready to step down from the post after being elected by the municipal council in 2011.

Gevoryan said that Margaryan met today with the deputy mayor of St. Petersburg now visiting Yerevan.

He added that Margaryan was absent at yesterday’s municipal council session because he was under the weather.
