Armenian Prime Minister resigned

ArmInfo. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on October 16 announced his resignation.

Making a statement on the Public TV channel, the head of the Armenian  government noted that after the non-violent "velvet revolution" the  country enters a new phase, when all power in the country should be  transferred to the people. Pashinyan stressed that the "roadmap" of  the next steps is as follows: immediately after his resignation of  the prime minister, the president immediately accepts the resignation  of the entire government. If, within 14 days, the country's  parliament does not elect the head of government, the country's  National Assembly is dissolved, and the president sets the date for a  new parliamentary election.  Throughout this period, members of the  government will continue to fulfill their duties. "I will also  continue to fulfill the constitutional powers of the Prime Minister,"  said Nikol Pashinyan, adding that he would continue to be the  guarantor of the victorious nation. "If at the early parliamentary  elections in December of this year, you give me a vote of confidence,  our political strength, I will again be elected head of the  government," said Nikol Pashinyan.

According to him, many today express concern about the possibility of  nominating another candidate, and is society ready for such a  scenario? "Developments have shown that we are more than ready for  any possible scenario, because any political force cannot but be  considered as the will of the people. But today I don't even want to  comment on this development, because no matter what sharp disputes we  have with a number of parliamentary forces, I cannot imagine that  these forces come out against the people and national security.  Parliamentary forces are well aware of the impossibility of moving  beyond the "red line", the Prime Minister noted, recalling that  almost all Armenian forces announced their refusal to nominate their  candidates.

Nikol Pashinyan, referring to the faction of the Republican Party,  which previously had an overwhelming majority in the country's  parliament, said that the new authorities do not intend to look for  enemies.  "Throughout my life I have spoken and today I will repeat,  I didn't have enemies in Armenia, and there will be no enemies.  Wishing success to all political forces in the upcoming early  elections, I assure that our government guarantees the free will of  the people," said Nikol Pashinyan.

According to him, despite the fact that the resignation is of a  formal nature, those less, the moment is exciting. After the  revolution, the country is entering a new phase. After 5 months after  taking office, Nikol Pashinyan expressed gratitude to the people for  their assistance. He also apologized to the citizens of the country,  whose hopes he had not met. "All your pain is in my heart, all your  expectations are in my mind.  Your support allows me to confidently  say that everything will be fine, will be very good, prepare for new  victories. I love everyone and kiss you all. Glory to freedom, glory  to Armenia, glory to ours children who will live in a free and fair  country ", the RA Prime Minister stated.
