Newspaper: The President and the Prime Minister came to an agreement:  Sargsyan will head the Cabinet in 2018 - Karapetyan will become his  deputy

ArmInfo.The President and the Prime Minister of Armenia came to a consensus on personnel reshuffle, which should occur in April 2018, when the term of office  of President Serzh Sargsyan expires, the Zhamanak newspaper reports with reference to informed sources.

So, according to the newspaper, after the return from Geneva, where  after a long break the talks on the Karabakh settlement at the  highest level between Armenia and Azerbaijan were held, Serzh  Sargsyan met with Karen Karapetyan and explained to him the  situation's situation, making it clear that the latter can not bear  the burden on himself However, after the full transition of Armenia  to a parliamentary form of government from April 2018, negotiations  should be conducted by the prime minister.

In this connection, according to the sources of the newspaper,  Sargsyan suggested that after April 2018 Karapetyan take up the post  of vice-premier, in charge of which will be almost the entire  Cabinet, financial and economic and social blocs. And Sargsyan,  according to the newspaper, will become prime minister and will  oversee political and security issues. The source also reports that  Sargsyan will continue to meet in his residence at Baghramyan 26, and  Karen Karapetyan - in the government building. Perhaps, the future  president, whose powers have drastically reduced after the adoption  of the new Constitution, will share the residence with Serzh  Sargsyan, the newspaper sums up.
