Armenian government to appoint three new governors

ArmInfo. The agenda of the extraordinary meeting of the Armenian government to be held on October 16 includes the issue of appointing three new governors of Aragatsotn, Syunik and Armavir regions.

According to the draft decision published on the government website,  Aragatsotn region will be headed by David Gevorgyan, Syunik - Hunan  Poghosyan, and Hambardzum Matevosyan will become the head of Armavir  region.

To recall, the government of Armenia at a meeting on October 10  decided to appoint three governors. Gnel Sanosyan (previously served  as deputy minister of nature protection) became the new governor of  Gegharkunik region. Trdat Sargsyan will head Vayots Dzor region,  Andrey Ghukasyan (former deputy governor) will head Lori region.

To note, Hunan Poghosyan was the first deputy head of the Armenian  police, who resigned on May 11. "I made a decision on resignation. I  ask you not to look for subtext in my words and decisions," he wrote,  stressing that he always acted according to his conscience. "I have  always served, and I will serve the Republic of Armenia, wherever  this service is required, and if I am sure that I can give maximum to  my state and people," the statement of Hunan Poghosyan read.

On October 2, after the parliament passed the bill, which, according  to its opponents, is aimed at preventing the dissolution of the  National Assembly, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated at the rally  on Baghramyan Avenue about the dismissal of ministers and governors  from the Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP) and ARF Dashnaktsutyun . On  October 4, the Cabinet dismissed six governors from the Tsarukyan  bloc and the ARF Dashnaktsutyun. The governors of Aragatsotn region -  Ashot Simonyan, Lori region - Hrant Margaryan, Vayots Dzor region -  Aragats Saghatelyan, Armavir region - Gagik Mirijanyan, Gegharkunik  region - Ishkhan Saghatelyan and Syunik region - Karen Ambartsumyan  were dismissed.
