Karen Karapetyan wants to continue to head the Cabinet of Armenia  after 2018

ArmInfo. Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan wants to continue to head the Cabinet of Armenia after 2018. Karapetyan admitted about this, answering the question of  one of the participants of the Armenia-Diaspora forum.  At the same time, when answering the question about the possibility of Serzh Sargsyan's premiership after the expiration of his presidential term in 2018, Karapetyan said: "I do not want to comment on private opinions, I have to wait for the final and official statement of the  ruling Republican Party, in respect to this.  There was no such statement by now".

It is noteworthy that Karapetyan thus gave a clear answer to all  large-caliber and small-caliber Republicans who, in the last few days  without giving a turn to each other, stated that the best candidate  for the post of prime minister in 2018 is Serzh Sargsyan, although  the latter earlier assured that in case of successful on the basis of  a constitutional referendum, he will not head the Cabinet upon expiry  their presidential powers. At the same time, Karapetyan stressed that  the main goal of the Cabinet he chairs is to fight corruption and  hanging economic and investment activity of Armenia. Karapetyan also  informed that the government is actively preparing for an  international economic forum in Yerevan in the autumn of 2018, which  seeks to make it an annual one.

It is noteworthy that the autumn forum will follow the expiry of the  presidential term of office of Serzh Sargsyan. Thus, Karapetyan made  it clear that his plans as prime minister of the country are not  limited to the beginning of 2018.
