Of the officials who left the Orinats Yerkir Party Sergo Yeritsyan
was very quickly dismissed from the post of the minister of education
and culture. Aram Harutiunyan, the minister of city planning, is
still in office. He is not a party affiliate any more. "Has anyone
given you a guarantee that you will not be dismissed?" In answer to
this question he said, "It is not a problem that I should decide,
it is a problem to be decided by the government. I have expressed my
willingness; if the government assesses my work, I will fulfill my
duties," answered Aram Harutiunyan. Aram Harutiunyan is unlikely to
affiliate with any political party in the nearest future.
