Karapetyan also added that the Republican Party is in complete support of his agenda, which include several reforms in various sectors.

Currently, nine of the 19 cabinet ministers were not a part of Armenia’s previous Prime Minster Hovik Abrahamyan’s cabinet.

Two of those cabinet members, Transport and Communications Minister Vahan Martirosian and Agriculture Minister Ignati Arakelian, told reporters after the Nov. 24 cabinet meeting, that they too have applied for RPA membership.
