Armenia’s Parliament to Appoint New PM

The Armenian parliament will elect a new prime minister on May 1, according to a statement on the parliament’s website and the parliamentary speaker. This is expected to be followed by new parliamentary elections. This comes as anti-government protests in Armenia have continued, despite the demonstrators’ success in obtaining their main goal: the resignation of long-standing leader Serzh Sargsyan, Euro News reported. The opposition leader, many protesters would like as prime minister, Nikol Pashinyan, had called for more rallies. He wants the whole government to stand down. Tens of thousands of people have again taken to the streets of the capital Yerevan, after talks between Pashinyan and the acting prime minister broke down. Armenia’s President Armen Sarkissian has called for all political groups, especially in parliament, to work toward “a new Armenia”. The main opposition bloc plans to nominate Pashinyan to be the next prime minister. Armenia’s constitution dictates that in the event of the prime minister’s resignation, parliamentary factions nominate candidates within seven days and the National Assembly then elects the new premier by a majority.
