In Armenia began to elect a new Prime Minister”

Pashinyan, who was the only candidate for the post, had called on individual MPs to cross party lines and support him when the ruling Republican party said that it would not vote for him after a nine-hour session. "This government just won't resign on its own will".

Though Pashinyan is loath to say it, observers see Moscow's hand in Tuesday's vote.

However, as a debate unfolded in parliament to discuss Mr Pashinyan's candidacy for the vacant prime minister's post, it became clear the ruling elite was not willing to surrender power.
