/PanARMENIAN.Net/ ARF Dashnaktsutyun MP Artsvik Minasyan is ready
to cede his position in RA NA to Heritage Faction representative,
Mayoral candidate Artsvik Minasyan told a news conference in Yerevan.

"I'm ready to cede my position of Deputy Head of Finance and Budget
Standing Committee to Heritage Faction representative." According to

strengthen its role as a parliamentary opposition," the MP emphasized.
