PanARMENIAN.Net - Any step to relive Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan of
post is welcome by Prosperous Armenia party, Haykakan Zhamanak daily
quoted the party's spokesman Tigran Urikhanyan as saying.

Given the parliamentary groups' stance on Prime Minister Tigran
Sargsyan's policy, measures are expected to be taken to bring about
2011 budget implementation failure.

The parliament is due to discuss the report on 2011 budget
implementation in its fall session. Under the National Assembly
regulations, if the proposal to approve the budget implantation
doesn't get the necessary number of votes, it may question the
government's future activity. With RA president not authorized to
dismiss the prime minister, under RA Constitution he may be relieved
of post either after he sends in resignation, or after the National
Assembly expresses displeasure with his performance.

Thus, the upcoming discussion of budget implementation is a chance for
`Prosperous Armenia to bring about prime minister's resignation,' the
paper says.
