Artak Zeynalyan, currently serving as Armenia’s Minister of Justice, told reporters today that he will head the ticket of an alliance to be formed by the Hanrapetutyun (Republic) and Lousavor Hayastan (Enlightened Armenia) parties in the September 23 Yerevan Municipal Council election.

The following  political parties have already registered for the election - Heritage, Civil Contract, Yerkir Tsirani and Prosperous Armenia, Gala.
