Central Bank Chariman Resigns from Parliament

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan/Armenpress)Parliament member–Bagrat Assatrian–submitted his resignation to the Parliament Speaker Monday.

Assatrian explained that his work as President of the Central Bank conflicts with his work as a member of Parliament–said Karapet Roubinian at a National Assembly meeting on Monday.

Under Article 18 of the Parliament regulations–if a Parliament Member sends in his second resignation within 15 days of the announcement of resignation in Parliament–but no later than a month–then a protocol on the revocation of his deputy powers must be drawn up and signed by the Parliament Speaker.
