Date of Armenia's new parliament first session revealed
The first session of the new Armenian parliament that will be elected in December 9 polls will be held on December 31, adviser to Armenian Prime Minister Mesrop Arakelyan wrote on his Facebook page.
"The first session of the new National Assembly and the appointment of Prime Minister will take place on December 31. Happy New Year, new Armenia," ARKA cited Arakelyan as saying.
Nikol Pashinyan resigned October 16 to clear way for the dissolution of the parliament and holding early parliamentary elections. Under the Armenian Constitution, early elections are held if lawmakers fail twice within 14 days to appoint a prime minister.
