Armenian Opposition Leader Pashinyan: Protesters Will Block Streets, Airport, Everything


Armenian opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan has not been elected as the country's interim prime minister amid ongoing protests, APA reports quoting Sputnik.

 

The National Assembly of Armenia failed to elect Nikol Pashinyan, the only candidate in the vote, for the post of prime minister.

 

Forty-three out of the 105 parliamentarians had supported Pahinyan, while he needed 53 votes to get elected. Lawmakers of the ruling Republican Party voted against the opposition leader's candidacy, despite his warnings of a "political tsunami" in case he wasn't elected.

 

Pashinyan, who has been at the helm of the weeks-long rallies in Armenia, has slammed the ruling party for its decision, calling it an "insult to the people."
