Armenia protest leader bids to become new prime minister”

The Armenian National Assembly is set to elect Prime Minister on May.

On Saturday, after days of frantic negotiations, two major parties said they would back Pashinyan, but he was still six votes short of the 53 he needs from the 105-seat legislature. According to Pashinyan, either he is elected prime minister or no one is. Despite "a certain progress", the MP called on "non-violent actions of civil disobedience", Interfax quoted him as saying during a Facebook Live broadcast.

"I had a meeting with an official from Moscow and got reassurance that Russian Federation would not intervene in Armenia's internal affairs", Pashinyan told protesters gathered in Republic square in central Yerevan.

"An extremely important rally is expected, and we should display our resolve and show that we can not be broken down", Pashinian said. It also reported that supporters of opposition have gathered near the government building. Sargsyan resigned from the office this week, while the ruling Republican party chose not to run its candidate.
