Supporters of Armenian Opposition Leader Vow to Hold Rally 'Until Victory'

Nikol Pashinyan
Supporters of Nikol Pashinyan, an Armenian opposition figure and the only candidate for the post of country’s prime minister, told Sputnik on Tuesday they would hold a rally on Yerevan’s central Republic Square until their leader’s victory.

Earlier in the day, the Armenian parliament failed to elect Pashinyan as new prime minister. As many as 45 lawmakers voted in his favor, failing to secure the necessary 53 votes. Lawmakers of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) voted against his candidacy.

Since April 13, Pashinyan has been leading country’s protests which resulted in the resignation of Armenian Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan. The opposition leader was nominated by Armenian Way Out Alliance (Yelq) parliamentary group during Tuesday's special session of country's parliament.
