Civil Contract party nominates comedy actor as Yerevan mayor candidate
Armenia's Civil Contract party has already put up is candidate for the Yerevan mayor post, a member of the party Alen Simonyan said.
He said that the selection has been carried out in two rounds. Of the four candidates singled out by the party initially, two remained at the second round - Simonyan and Armenian comedy actor Hayk Marutyunan. Eventually, Marutyan was nominated as Yerevan mayor candidate, ARKA reported.
The position came vacant after Taron Margaryan’s resigned as mayor on July 9.
A new election was scheduled for July 16, but not sufficient city council members were present at that session, so the election was postponed.
