Armenian ruling party to vote for PM nominee: lawmaker

April FrancisMay 09, 2018

Armen Sarkissian signed a decree earlier on Tuesday to appoint Nikol Pashinyan as Armenia's Prime Minister.

Although numerous party's deputies voted for Nikol Pashinian in a move to overcome the country's political turmoil, Ashotyan said: "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". "And this place is not in power, but in the opposition".

On May 1, the first vote in the Armenian parliament failed, since the only candidate, opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan, received only 45 votes out of the required 53.

Pashinyan reiterated his intention not to alter Armenia's current foreign policy course, including the country's membership in Russia-led Eurasian Economic Union or keeping Russian military bases on Armenia's territory.

In response to Sargsyan's appointment as prime minister, Pashinyan called for a campaign of peaceful, civil disobedience, harnessing a widespread desire for change among ordinary Armenians. "The victory is that you chose who would be prime minister". Fighting periodically breaks out between those forces and Azerbaijani troops stationed on the other side of a demilitarized zone.

Both Azerbaijan and Turkey have closed their borders with Armenia over the conflict, inhibiting trade and leaving Armenia in semi-isolation.

"I am 95 percent sure that your candidate will be elected as prime minister tomorrow", Pashinan told the cheering crowd.

"I am very happy because this is a movement for the people, Armenians have come together and learned to love one another", said Anna Maritosyan, a social worker who was among the celebrants.

Supporters say Mr Pashinyan, who was also imprisoned after opposition rallies in 2008 turned deadly, is among history's great peaceful revolutionaries.

Pashinian spearheaded weeks of largely peaceable protests that gripped the nation in political turmoil. "Before the early 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.

Though this vote lacked the drama of the previous week's - when the Republicans did not tip their hand about whether or not they would vote for Pashinyan - the ruling party nevertheless signaled that it did not intend to give up the fight. That transfer appeared to make sure Pashinian can be chosen Tuesday.
