Armenian Organization to Change Name to Seek Registration

TBILISI (Armenpress)–The Armenian ethnic organization "Virk," acting in the Georgian province of Javakhk is going to change the Armenian name to Georgian "Zarri" (Bell) within a month and hold a founding congress to declare itself as an all-country political organization.

Until now the Georgian justice ministry has denied the organization’s three registration attempts on grounds that it was a local organization and that its Armenian name was not clear to the majority of population.

The leader of "Virk" David Restikian said in an interview with the Prime News agency that this decision was adopted by the organization’s ruling board last Saturday. The leader said the appropriate documen’s will be sent to justice ministry to make the new organization eligible to run for the June 2nd elections to local management bodies.
