Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, who has been demanded to leave his post for months in Armenia, which decided to call early elections after a heavy defeat by Azerbaijan in the Nagorno-Karabakh war, has decided to resign.
Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, who no longer resisted the reactions in Armenia following his defeat from Azerbaijan in the Nagorno-Karabakh war, has decided to resign.
Calls for the country’s resignation, which began for months after the opposition’s war defeat, have been answered. Pashinyan, who had previously announced that he would go to the polls on June 20th, announced that he would resign in April.
“I will resign for early elections in April. During this period, I will continue to be acting prime minister.”
Armenia’s military demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and the government in February.
Pashinian said there was an attempted coup in the country and announced that he had dismissed the Chief of Staff.
Armenian President Armen Sarkisian did not sign the document regarding the dismissal of the Chief of Staff.
