Republican Party Says It Won’t Nominate Candidate for Prime Minister


YEREVAN (Armenpress) —The Republican Party of Armenia issued a statement on October 9 about the early parliamentary elections of Armenia, noting that in case Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan resigns, the party will not nominate a candidate from the party.

“We remain committed to our policy and do not want to create obstacles for the works of the Government of the Republic of Armenia. We have expressed our position on early parliamentary elections numerous times. We are not against early elections, the responsibility for which lies on the shoulders of the Government.”

The statement noted the party’s preference for holding the elections in the spring.

However, later, 16 members of the party signed a petition supporting Pashinyan’s initiative to hold elections in December.
