Speaker: The protest demanding the resignation of Arayik Harutyunyan  are mainly due to political considerations

ArmInfo.The protests demanding the resignation of RA Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sports Arayik Harutyunyan are mainly due to political  considerations. Speaker of the Armenian parliament Ararat Mirzoyan  stated this to reporters on November 14.  <I support his policy on  reforming the education system. Our points are the same. There are no  grounds for his resignation,> he noted.

Mirzoyan drew attention to the fact that among the protesters there  are people with an obvious party and political orientation. "Their  demands for the resignation of the minister are mainly due to  political considerations," the speaker emphasized.

To recall, the ministerial initiative, according to which the  Armenian language, literature, and history of Armenia will not be  included in the list of compulsory disciplines in the curriculum of  universities, has become the "bone of contention". In this regard,  for several days in the capital, a group of students boycotts classes  and holds a picket near the building of the ministry.

Earlier, Arayik Harutyunyan openly stated that ARF-D is behind these  protests. Recalling that the members of "Dashnaktsutyun" over the  years led the Ministry of Education and Science, he reported on the  presence of a number of criminal cases indicating a low level of  coordination of the educational sphere in the noted period.  This  statement was criticized by a member of the ARF Supreme Council  Artsvik Minasyan, noting that he was not afraid of the minister's  words about the existence of criminal cases.
