Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sport of Armenia Arayik Harutyunyan must talk to the people who don’t agree with his actions. This is what President of the “Against Legal Arbitrariness” NGO, first Human Rights Defender of Armenia Larisa Alaverdyan told reporters during a protest that citizens were holding with the demand for Harutyunyan’s resignation today.
“I’m mainly demanding that Arayik Harutyunyan renounce his policy. We see that he is not only continuing to lead the policy, but is also clinging to the Prime Minister. I not only reject the attempts to completely revolutionize the value system of Armenians, starting from schools and even kindergartens, but also condemn it,” she said.
Asked if the minister will resign after these protests, Alverdyan said the following: “I would be surprised to know that he thinks he’s going to be minister forever. Literate people need to understand that people don’t hold office forever. He must negotiate with all extra-parliamentary forces and talk to the people who disagree with him.”
