Breaking: Tomorrow’s Pashinyan-Karapetyan Meeting Scrapped

22:36, 24 April, 2018

Civil Contract political party spokesman Tigran Avinyan says that tomorrow’s scheduled meeting between anti-government leader Nikol Pashinyan and Acting Armenian Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan has been cancelled since the two sides haven’t reached a consensus on the agenda.

Pashinyan has stressed that the resignation of Serzh Sargsyan is only one of the demands of the “Velvet Revolution” in Armenia, and that what must follow is for the National Assembly to elect the “people’s candidate” as the country’s next prime minister. Next on the agenda is the formation of a caretaker government and snap parliamentary elections.

At a press conference today with international news outlets, Pashinyan again ruled out any Republican Party of Armenia candidate for the post of prime minister.

“Talks can only be held regarding our agenda,” Avinyan told Hetq.
