Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has named Vladimir Karapetyan as his new Spokesperson.
Former Spokesman Arman Yeghoyan has been elected to Parliament.
Vladimir Karapetyan said in a Facebook post he is quitting his activities in the Armenian National Congress Party.
“Public service implies some written and unwritten restrictions. Party activity is one of them, and I have decided to quit it during my state service,” he said.
He said he is “honored to return to public service” and thanked Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan for the offer.
Karapetyan worked as Spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs before 2008.
