During a Cabinet meeting today, PM Pashinyan said he was bitter as he highlighted numerous issues observed during his recent visits to towns where new schools were under construction.

"I've noticed significant problems in our project implementation, particularly in ongoing school projects, across provinces. We often encounter issues related to blueprinting, development, and equipment, resulting in substandard quality," he stated.

Pashinyan pinpointed specific concerns, citing instances where schools were equipped with volleyball nets in their gyms but lacked corresponding court markings. "Volleyball is a regulated sport. Although we've provided nets to numerous schools, upon entering their gyms, one can't find a volleyball court. In some cases, hangers in schools are unstable, and water leakage persists," he added, highlighting poor construction standards.


The Prime Minister emphasized that it is the governors' responsibility to oversee construction quality.

"In certain locations, I've had to revisit, even up to three times. Where I visit thrice, officials should visit thirteen times. They need to check everything—from using facilities like sinks to hanging coats on hangers—to understand the situation," Pashinyan directed his government officials.


Expressing zero tolerance for substandard implementation, Pashinyan stressed the importance of ensuring quality right from the blueprinting phase.

"Our priority is clear: when we inaugurate new schools and tell children to study there, we must ensure everything functions properly. A child experiencing a hanger falling off while hanging a coat will question the state's credibility. If a 150-dram hanger substitutes a 3000-dram one, the child might perceive widespread corruption," Pashinyan explained.


“I no longer need explanations for the problems. I need solutions to the problems. Please, don’t give me explanations, come and tell me that the problem has been solved. We no longer need officials who simply raise issues, we need officials who solve the issues,” Pashinyan said firmly.

I am Armenian, born in Germany, and currently, we are facing a flood catastrophe. While this is a manageable situation, it is not comparable to the significant crises Armenia has endured in recent years. Now, imagine if our chancellor were to visit a school and personally inspect minor issues like the quality of coat hangers, instead of focusing on improving the overall quality of education.

This would raise concerns about his priorities and could lead to a significant backlash. It might create the impression that he is more interested in superficial matters, posing as a cheap anti-corruption officer in an ill-fitting suit and a ridiculous hat, rather than addressing the real issues at hand. Meanwhile, 120,000 Armenians in Artsakh have…
