A Cabinet meeting was held today, chaired by Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan. Before proceeding to the agenda, the Prime Minister touched upon the formation of the government.
“You know that a new government is being formed and, in parallel, we are discussing issues related to the structure of the government. Under the applicable law, the government is not considered formed unless 2/3 of Cabinet members have been appointed. We will go that way, 2/3 of government members will be appointed, 1/3 will not be appointed unless the final details have been clarified about the government’s composition and structural changes. One thing is obvious: the number of ministries will be reduced, and this process should be implemented as smoothly as possible and in a predictable way,” Nikol Pashinyan pointed out, adding that a road map will be developed to that effect.
