ARF-D is waiting for assistance of "Prosperous Armenia" and "Bright  Armenia" in  issue of Araik Harutyunyan`s resignation  

ArmInfo.  On November 15, the  ARF-D youth wing wrote to the "Prosperous Armenia" and "Bright  Armenia" factions with a proposal to initiate the process of  resignation of Arayik Harutyunyan from the post of Minister of  Education, Science, Culture and Sports of the Republic of Armenia.

To recall, the ministry took the initiative to exclude the Armenian  language, literature and history of Armenia from the list of  compulsory disciplines in universities. Earlier in Yerevan, some YSU  students and ARF representatives held pickets and protests against  this.

Meanwhile, the ministry explained that according to the working draft  law "On Higher Education and Science", each university has the right  to decide independently whether it is necessary to include Armenian  discipline in the curriculum of non-core faculties.  Yesterday,  Parliament Speaker Ararat Mirzoyan noted that the protests demanding  the resignation of Arayik Harutyunyan have a political connotation,  and people directly connected with some political forces participate  in them.
