Armenian President launches formation of "government of national  accord" - ex-mayor of Yerevan Karen Karapetyan may head it   

ArmInfo. Committed to his  recent promise, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan has started forming  a so-called "government of national accord".   

ArmInfo has been told by a source close to the authorities that for  that purpose Karen Karapetyan, ex- mayor of Yerevan, Deputy CEO for  Strategic Development at Gazprom Mezhregiongaz, has already been  invited to Yerevan. According to the same source, the Armenian  President is going to offer Karapetyan to head the "government of  national accord". The source does not specify what the incumbent  prime minister will be doing in that case.         

The ministerial office will also undergo some changes. For instance,  Head of the Armenian President's Staff Vigen Sargsyan will be  appointed foreign minister, and the incumbent Foreign Minister Edward  Nalbandian will be sent to France as an ambassador. It is not ruled  out that National Security Council Secretary Armen Gevorgyan will  replace Vigen Sargsyan as the head of the President's Staff. In that  case, the Security Council will become part of the President's  Administration.     

According to the source, Head of the Customs Service Hovik Hovsepyan  may be dismissed in the near future. The former Prosecutor General,  Gevorg Kostanyan, will replace Yuri Vardanyan as Armenia's Ambassador  to Georgia. Acting Prosecutor General Armen Harutyunyan's nominee  will be advanced for the prosecutor general's post.
