The newly elected Council of Elders has assumed office for nearly two months.
“Yelq” faction of the Council of Elders has launched a few noisy initiatives that have not been widely accepted by the public in social networks. The two-month operation of the oppositional faction (the renaming of several streets of Yerevan, the ban on rabiz music in the Vernisage area, banning flags of other states in public transport) gave rise to public debates. The most tangible achievment of “Yelq” Faction of the Yerevan Council of Elders is considered the suspension of charges by mobiles for paid parking spaces.
The discussion entitled “Pre-Election Promises and Steps: Two-Month Operation of “Yelq” Faction of Yerevan Council of Elders” hosted Arayik Harutyunyan, Davit Khajakyan and Sergey Ghahramanyan, Members of “Yelq” Faction at Media Center on August 22 and analyzed the results of their short term operation, spoke about the current issues and possible solutions.
As a reply to the question how the faction follows the provisions of the pre-election program, Arayik Harutyunyan says that in order to fulfil the program completely, “Yelq” Alliance should have power.
