The Armenian National Assembly has voted on the single candidature for the prime minister's post, the leader of the Velvet Revolution, chair of the Civil Contract Party, MP Nikol Pashinyan.
Armenia's parliament has elected opposition lawmaker Nikol Pashinian as the country's new prime minister. In a concession last week, the Republicans agreed to support any prime minister candidate nominated by a third of the parliament members, paving the way for Pashinian's election.
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.
Parliament met again on Tuesday to choose a leader, and this time Mr. Pashinyan prevailed. Elections will not be rigged and vote bribes will not be handed out anymore, period!

But throughout Armenia's wave of protests, Moscow has remained publicly neutral, and Pashinyan has consistently said he viewed Moscow as a vital ally.
Before the start of the protests last month, he walked some 200 kilometres (125 miles) from Gyumri - Armenia's second city - to Yerevan with his supporters, often sleeping in the open.
Pashinyan, who was one of the main supporters of Ter-Petrosian, became a target for political presecutions and was forced to spend nearly 1.5 years "underground". "This process should continue, in line with the wishes of the Armenian people", Jagland said.

He was released from jail in 2011 under a prisoner amnesty scheme and elected to parliament the next year.
