Looks like Mr. Vazgen Manukian is slowly expanding his shady influence on Armenia. First, he unleashed a campaign against Levon Ter-Petrosian and the Sharjum. Then he endorsed the RK-SS duo and their tactics. After that, his buddy and one time party apparatchik Tigran Sargsian became the Prime Minister.
Now another buddy of his, an infamous windbag Shavarsh Kocharian, has become the Deputy Foreign Minister. It's only a matter of time until Mr. Manukian is given a comfy position as well for his support of the regime.
BTW: It looks like Mr. Shavarsh Kocharian was appointed to this position illegally. He was given this position by SS. The constitution allows the president to appoint people only if he has that right given to him by the constitution or a law (article 55, paragraphs 4 and 5). SS has appointed Mr. Kocharian not based by the constitution or a law but based on a presidential decree for organizing the work of the government. A presidential decree is not a law (a law is something that is passed by the parliament).
So, SS has managed to commit yet another illegitimate act. Congratulations!
