What threatens the relations of Yerevan and Moscow? Pashinyan's Comments
Earlier, a spokesman for the Civil Contract party led by Pashinyan, Tigran Avinyan, said that the meeting with the Russian parliamentarians "was held in a very constructive atmosphere."
“After the refusal of all factions of the Armenian parliament, except the Yelk faction (Exodus) headed by Pashinyan, to nominate candidates for the post of prime minister, he became the only candidate. However, the opposition member needs 53 votes from 105 to be elected. Therefore, not only the Yelk faction, the Tsarukyan and Dashnaktsutyun blocs should vote for him, but also some of the deputies of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA), ”explains the agency.
The issue of electing the prime minister will be considered by the Armenian parliament on May 1.
Recall that actions against the election of ex-President Sargsyan as prime minister began in Armenia on April 13. The opposition accuses Sargsyan, who was twice elected to the presidency, of poor management and the deterioration of the economic situation in the country. 23 April, Sargsyan resigned.
