  1. So far so good, Mr. Prime Minister. Now it is time to START A CLEANUP CAMPAIGN TO REMOVE “THE HOOLIGANS (who are disturbing the daily life of the Citizens) FROM THE STREETS OF YEREVAN. The civilized WORLD and our enemies are watching 24/7. HOOLIGANS should respect the Constitution and the Elected Members of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia. There must be a limit applied to the street CRIMINALS AND HOOLIGANS.
