Opposition leader named new Armenian prime minister

Pashinian made clear at the same time that he will not wage "vendettas" against members of the HHK and the previous governments and will preclude any "redistribution" of economic assets and properties. "My goal is bring real changes to Armenia". "He is one of the few political guys in Armenia who really changed", said Samvel Martirosyan, a specialist in internet security and a veteran political observer.

Pashinian, in a speech to parliament before his election Tuesday, said his revolution will lead to the "recognition of realizing the rights of Karabakh to self-determination". But he gave no possible dates for the conduct of such polls.

In the lead-up to his election on Tuesday, Pashinyan said that he was committed to staying in an economic bloc and regional collective security organization led by Russian Federation, which is wary of an uncontrolled change of power that would pull the country out of Russia's orbit.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has congratulated Armenian protest leader on his election as the country's new prime minister.

As required by the Constitution, a new government must be formed within 15 days after electing a Prime Minister.

Mr Pashinyan, who had begun a protest march to Yerevan ahead of the president's switch to prime minster, arrived in the capital to lead daily protests.

"You managed to turn your anger and despair into a positive movement", Tankian told the crowd. "And for me, my goal isn't to become prime minister".

Shortly after he was named prime minister Tuesday, Nikol Pashinian said he would make a trip to the region of Azerbaijan that has been under the control of ethnic Armenian forces for more than two decades.

It has been an unlikely rise to power in the post-Soviet republic of about three million for the former newspaper editor. He also has a long history of political activism.

The RA NA Deputy Speaker Mikayel Melkumyan has presented the viewpoint of the RA NA Tsarukyan Faction on the Prime Minister's candidacy, noting that their nominee is Nikol Pashinyan, and their party is with the people. The group called Impeachment failed to win any parliament seats.

He has publicly fallen out with other opposition leaders such as the former president Levon Ter-Petrosyan. The vote marred by reports of serious fraud formalized the handover of power from Kocharyan to Serzh Sargsyan.
