Armenian ruling party to vote for PM nominee: lawmaker

Armenian ruling party to vote for PM nominee: lawmaker”

"The victory is not that I was elected prime minister", Pashinyan told the crowd. Pashinian earlier said that he would push for recognition of the region's sovereignty. Fighting periodically breaks out between those forces and Azerbaijani troops stationed on the other side of a demilitarized zone. Bagdasaryan said today that they were voting for Pashinyan in spite of the fact that they were not reassured.

Such high hopes could lead to a hard fall, observers suggested, noting that Pashinian has yet even to articulate a platform.

At a concert in the city Monday night, Pashinyan had appeared alongside System of a Down front man Serj Tankian, who gave his support to the former journalist and was also present in parliament for the vote on Tuesday.

Ahead of Tuesday's vote, however, he swapped his street attire for a sleek suit, transforming himself into a polished politician with a soft handshake and a bashful smile. "The elites, sitting on the state's money sources, aren't ready for this and will oppose it".

Pending fresh elections "Pashinyan must manoeuvre between the will of the people and the parliamentary ruling party that he does not belong to and which can not begin supporting him", he said.

Karim Benzema then headed the ball across goal and Ronaldo was there to finish the move, nipping ahead of Gerard Pique to score. After Luis Suarez had put the hosts in front at Camp Nou just 10 minutes in, Ronaldo levelled matters just four minutes later.

"We do not consider it expedient to cooperate with the new government; it would be hypocritical to consider the issue of our participation in the new government", said Armen Ashotyan, a Republican faction leader. "Corruption will be eliminated from Armenia", he said.

On the same day, the Armenian parliament voted for Serzh Sargsyan as prime minister.

Sarkisian had been president since 2008, and term limits forced him to step aside last month.

The new edition of the Armenian constitution stipulates that a prime minister assumes all powers of government.

Sargsyan resigned the premiership six days after his appointment.

An emergency stop left around 60 people stuck on the Jurassic Park-themed "Flying Dragon" roller coaster on May 1, 2018. No injuries or casualties were reported. "I don't want to ride it anymore", one woman visiting the park told the Times.

Thousands of supporters gathered to celebrate in the capital of Yerevan as Pashinyan won the vote 59 to 42, according to the BBC.

The unresolved status of Nagorno-Karabakh contributes to the economic problems that are a key issue for Pashinian's supporters.

"This is a remarkable shift in Armenian politics", said Laurence Broers, an associate fellow at the Chatham House think tank's Russian Federation and Eurasia program, adding: "The desire for change is coming from within". Both those countries closed their borders with Armenia over the conflict, leaving Armenia with direct land access only to Georgia and Iran.

Political analysts say Pashinyan's election is unlikely to put an end to the political crisis, as the ruling party retains a majority in parliament and could well block his initiatives.

He later said he was prepared for talks, but only if the separatists were involved.
