Armenia's new prime minister Serzh Sargsyan has resigned. Anti-government protesters accused him of clinging to power, having already served two five-year terms as president. In the end, even groups of soldiers had joined the protests.
Armenia's president has dissolved parliament and called for new elections in December. The move is in sync with acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian's plans to gain control of the legislature through snap elections.
Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan seeks to gain control of parliament through early elections. Pashinyan came to power last spring in the wake of anti-corruption protests.
Angry with Austria's archconservative and anti-immigrant government, leftists have called for weekly protests. But many young people in Vienna are hoping their millennial leader can make Austria great again.
The move follows days of protests against Sargsyan, whom protesters accuse of clinging to power. Earlier on Monday, opposition leader Nikol Pashinian, who was detained for his role in the protests, was released.
