Ararat Mirzoyan (Armenian: Արարատ Միրզոյան; born 23 November 1979) is an Armenian politician and former member of the Armenian National Assembly. As a founding member of the Civil Contract Party,[1] he ran under the Way Out Alliance during the 2017 parliamentary election and was elected to represent the third electoral district, consisting of the Malatia-Sebastia and Shengavit neighbourhoods of Yerevan.

A strong opponent of Serzh Sargsyan, Mirzoyan was instrumental in the 2018 Armenian Velvet Revolution against Sargsyan's transition from President to Prime Minister. Notably, on April 11, 2018, he lit smoke flares during a speech in the National Assembly to call attention to the planned protests, which eventually did result in Sargsyan's resignation.[2]

In May 2018, after Nikol Pashinyan replaced Sargsyan as Prime Minister, Mirzoyan was appointed as First Deputy Prime Minister under the new administration,[3] for which he had to give up his seat in parliament.

Professional career

Prior to running as a political candidate, Mirzoyan worked at a number of employers in Armenia, including the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute, HSBC Bank Armenia, REGNUM News Agency, and the International Foundation for Electoral Systems.[4]
