PanARMENIAN.Net – Armenia’s Nikol Pashinyan will be acting Prime Minister before the snap parliamentary elections in summer, Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Alen Simonyan told reporters on Friday, March 19.
“Yes, Prime Minister Pashinyan will be acting [Prime Minister] during the electoral process. No other scenario has been discussed,” Simonyan said.
Pashinyan announced on Thursday that Armenia will hold snap parliamentary elections on June 20.
The Armenian came under fire after signing a statement with the Russian and Azerbaijani Presidents to end the war in Nagorno-Karabakh almost 45 days after the start of the military hostilities. Under the deal, the Armenian side was forced to return all the seven regions surrounding Karabakh, having lost a part of Karabakh itself in hostilities.
