President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan Forms ‘Public Council’

Sarkisian Forms ‘Public Council’

YEREVAN (RFE/RL)–President Serzh Sarkisian appointed on Wednesday the first 12 members of a new, supposedly broad-based body that will discuss and advise Armenia’s leadership on key challengers facing the country.

Sarkisian had announced his intention to set up a “public council” of representatives of leading political and non-governmental organizations, including those opposed to his administration, as well as prominent public figures in May 2008. He presented the move as a further indication of his eagerness to defuse Armenia’s post-election political crisis through a dialogue with the opposition and other segments of Armenian society.

The Public Council will comprise 36 members. One third of them appointed by the president of the republic and twelve other members will be chosen at “meetings of people involved in various spheres,” according to Victor Dallakian, an independent parliamentarian and member of a presidential task force that has drawn up the council’s statues approved by Sarkisian on Wednesday. He said these 24 members will then decide who should occupy the remaining council seats.
