Karapetyan was chief executive of the Armenian-Russian joint venture ArmRosGazprom beginning in 2001. He became Mayor of Yerevan on December 17, 2010 after receiving overwhelming support from the municipal assembly. He succeeded Gagik Beglaryan, a controversial mayor who resigned in early December 2010 after being embroiled in a high-profile scandal with the presidential administration of Serzh Sargsyan.

Just one month into his term as mayor, Karapetyan arguably sparked the 2011 Armenian protests when he ordered the municipality to enforce a strict ban on street trading. Angry street vendors took to the streets to call for Karapetyan's resignation and the repeal of the ban. As protests grew larger, with many rallies being held illegally in Yerevan's central Freedom Square, Karapetyan held his ground, insisting that the ban on gathering in Freedom Square would remain in place and refusing to consider relaxing the municipality's restrictions on street trading.

Prime Minister of Armenia

After the resignation of Hovik Abrahamyan, Karapetyan was quickly named a possible successor. This was confirmed during a meeting of the Republican Party of Armenia and officially confirmed by President Serzh Sargsyan on September 13, 2016. It is said that Karapetyan's new Government will bring sweeping changes and reforms to the country and economy.

Personal life

Karen Karapetyan is married and has three children. In 1989 he earned a PhD in economics.
