ARMENIA'S RULING PARTY LACKS NEW MEMBERS " MARKAROV

YEREVAN, April 29. /ARKA/. The last appointments to public posts in
Armenia indicate the lack of people from new generation in the ruling
Republican Party of Armenia, said political analyst Alexander Markarov,
director of Armenian branch of CIS countries institute.

The problem existed back in 2013, during the presidential election,
he said.

It is difficult to find new members who may rise to higher echelons
and replace the old leaders, Markarov told a press conference Tuesday
as quoted by Novosti-Armenia.

Markarov expressed hopes a new generation of leaders may rise in the
next 2017-2018 electoral cycle.

The 'old guard" attempted to maintain its positions in the new
government, which ahs led to the current situation, the expert said.

On April 13 Armenia's president appointed parliament speaker Hovik
Abrahamyan as premier to replace Tigran Sargsyan who resigned on
April 3. The ruling Republican Party of Armenia nominated head of
its faction Galust Sahakyan for speaker's post. ?"0?"
