Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has signed a decision, appointing former Glendale Mayor Zareh Sinanyan as High Commissioner for Diaspora Affairs.
Last week Zareh Sinanyan submitted a letter resigning his position on Glendale City Council effective immediately. He confirmed that he would be accepting a high-ranking position in the government of the Republic of Armenia.
Glendale City Council members have decided to fill a vacant seat on the dais by appointing a member from the community and launched a call for statements of interest this week.
Sinanyan was elected as a councilman of Glendale twice – in 2013 and 2017. He also twice served as the mayor of the city (2014-2015 and 2018-2019).
