All factions represented in the City Councils have worked well in the past four years. They have had achievements but it is not enough, Yerevan Mayor Taron Margaryan said during the last sitting of the outgoing City Council.
He added that the demands of Yerevan citizens are not fully met. “In view of drawbacks, I can only say that we did not have enough time [to address them all]. But we have received the vote of confidence of our co-citizens. And this period is enough to realize everything else,” he said.
Speaking about an incident that occurred in one of his campaign offices on the day of municipal elections in Yerevan, Mr Margaryan said, “We had normal elections. I do not want to assess other political forces; all of them are members of the City Council and received a vote of confidence by residents. They are ready to serve the interests of our citizens and we are ready to cooperate with them.
Zaruhi Postanjyan earlier announced that that she was going to turn Taron Margaryan’s life into a living hell. When asked to comment on Postanjyan’s statement, the Yerevan mayor said, “I think we are going to have interesting sittings [with Postanjyan’s presence]. You will attend them and see everything with your own eyes.”
Asked whether Postanjyan was ill-disposed towards him, Taron Margaryan said, “The time will come and you will see everything.”
