Prime Minister of Armenia
The Prime Minister of Armenia is the most senior minister within the Armenian government, and is required by the constitution to "oversee the Government's regular activities [and] coordinate the work of the Ministers." The Prime Minister is appointed by the President of Armenia, but can be removed by a vote of no confidence in parliament. The office of president is generally considered to more powerful than the office of Prime Minister.
The office of Prime Minister was first established in 1918 with the foundation of the Republic of Armenia. It vanished when Armenia was incorporated into the Soviet Union. When Armenia regained its independence, the office of Prime Minister was reintroduced.
If Prime Ministers from both before and after the Soviet annexation are included, there have been fourteen Prime Ministers of Armenia.
