UEFA will not grant the region’s team membership unless the ethnic conflict between Azerbaijan and the Armenian minority is resolved and Nagorno-Karabakh gains independence.
Armenia's parliament has elected protest leader Nikol Pashinyan prime minister. The transfer of power after weeks of protests resolves the immediate political crisis, but uncertainty looms on the horizon.
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.
Polls opened in Azerbaijan Wednesday morning in a snap election set to see President Ilham Aliyev re-elected for a seven-year term. Past elections have been neither free nor fair.
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.
