The Prime Minister recalled that at the end of last year he made a proposal to hold early parliamentary elections, which, first of all, was addressed to the parliamentary opposition. "But this proposal was rejected," Nikol Pashinyan said, noting that holding early elections would help to defuse the existing tensions and could become an instrument for changing the atmosphere that was established after the war. "But, unfortunately, we saw that there are forces that are striving exactly the opposite, some of them want to use the possibility of parliamentary elections, the holding of which they themselves rejected, as a platform for radical actions," the head of the Armenian government stressed. The Prime Minister noted that the idea of ??holding early parliamentary elections has not been completely rejected. Nikol Pashinyan admitted the possibility of making a decision on early elections in the format of a parliamentary majority.
