ARF expels party member who voted against Armenia PM candidate

Former lawmaker from the Armenian Revolutionary Federation Aghvan Vardanyan who voted against Nikol Pashinyan, the only candidate for prime minister on Tuesday, May 2, has been expelled from the party, the ARF said in a statement on Friday, May 4, PanARMENIAN.Net reports.

Vardanyan was the only member of parliament from the ARF who defied party decision and voted against Pashinyan, who, in turn, needed more than half of all the votes - the support of at least 53 lawmakers - to secure the prime minister’s spot, but got only 45.

Vardanyan had earlier resigned from his parliamentary post.
