Armenia’s Prime Minister Resigns -
YEREVAN (Tert.am)–Armenia’s Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan submitted his resignation, which was accepted by President Serzh Sarkisian, announced ruling Republican Party of Armenia spokesperson Edward Sharmazanov following the party’s plenary session Thursday.
Sharmazanov said that Sargsyan had tendered his resignation a month ago, but given that the Constitutional Court was still reviewing Armenia’s pension reform, the president had asked him to continue his duties.
On Wednesday, Armenia’s Constitutional Court overturned the controversial reform law.
Sargsyan has said that his decision was a serious one and that he had weighed it for a long time. Sharmazanov said Sargsyan’s resignation was for personal reasons.
