Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has congratulated Ukraine’s President Volodimir Zelensky and the Servant of the Nation Party on a “significant victory” in the snap parliamentary elections.
“I am convinced that the new parliament and the government will continue on the reforms path,” the Prime Minister said.
He voiced hope that new opportunities will open up for Armenian-Ukrainian cooperation.
Zelensky is set to control an absolute majority in parliament. His Servant of the People party – named after a sitcom in which he played a president – took around 42 percent of the weekend vote, with 50 percent of votes counted.
Media projections on Monday showed this puts the party on track to pick up more than half of the parliament’s 450 seats, the best showing by any party in Ukraine’s post-1991 history.
