Armenia’s parliament is expected to elect opposition leader Nikol Pashinian as prime minister following weeks of protests against the ruling party. His first bid for the job was narrowly blocked by the Republican Party on May 1.
After two weeks of protests, opposition leader Nikol Pashinian is the only candidate formally nominated for the post of prime minister. The key vote is to be held in parliament on Tuesday.
Armenians are pinning their hopes on Nikol Pashinian, whose protest movement forced unpopular Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan to resign. Now, the opposition leader says he wants to reform the country.
Opposition leader Nikol Pashinian has vowed massive protests after parliament rejected his bid for the premiership. The impasse heightens tensions following weeks of protests that ousted former PM Serzh Sargsyan.
Opposition leader Nikol Pashinian said he will meet the president-turned-premier to discuss "his resignation." But hours before the announcement, Sargsyan said no one but he himself could navigate Armenia's issues.
