Armenian Parliament set to elect Prime Minister

The Armenian Parliament is set to elect Prime Minister today with MP Nikol Pashinyan likely to take the post.

This will be Pashinyan’s second attempt to be elected after the Republican Party, which holds majority in the  105-seat Parliament blocked his first bid on May 1.

The vote follows weeks of protests, which led to the resignation of Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan a week after taking the post. Pashinyan called off the protests, when he got assurances from the Republican Party they would give him enough votes to be elected.
