Armenian opposition calls for national strike to demand Pashinyan's exit

Armenia's opposition called on their supporters to join a national strike on December 22 to press for the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.

Hundreds of opposition demonstrators rallied in Yerevan and chanted for Pashinyan's exit as the deadline passed last week. They have called for snap elections to be held and also put forward a possible interim leader to replace Pashinyan, Reuters reported.

"....We will continue accumulating power so that Tuesday (December 22) becomes decisive," one of the opposition leaders Ishkhan Saghatelyan told supporters at a rally in Yerevan where he announced the strike plans.
