Armenia's parliament set to vote on new premier

He has spearheaded anti-government protests since April 13, forcing former prime minister and two-time president Serzh Sargsyan to resign.

YEREVAN (A.W.)-In a live streamed video message on his official Facebook page, Nikol Pashinyan announced that according to information he has received, the Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) will not allow for his election as the country's prime minister (PM) during tomorrow's National Assembly vote. But he needs approval from a parliament dominated by Sarksyan supporters. At a meeting with the governing Republican party on Monday, as well as with the opposition bloc Way Out, Pashinyan said that a vote for him on Tuesday would be a vote for an end to the crisis.

All 47 opposition members of parliament have pledged to vote for Mr Pashinyan, but he will need the backing of some Republican Party deputies. On Sunday, RPA faction head Vahram Bagdasaryan said that the party would not impede Pashinyan's election.

"Don't stay at home, and right now, go out into the streets if you have not done it yet".
