Armenian parliament to elect prime minister on October 24
The election of Armenia's prime minister by the republic's parliament is scheduled for October 24, the National Assembly’s administration said.
In accordance with the Constitution, prime-ministerial candidates are nominated on the seventh day after a prime minister’s resignation.
Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan resigned as prime minister on October 16. This means that the deadline for nominating candidates is October 23, and a special session will be convened on October 24.
Pashinyan resigned for dismissing the National Assembly and conducting snap parliamentary elections. On the same day, the republic's President Armen Sarkisyan accepted Pashinyan’s resignation, ARKA recalled.
The early parliamentary elections are expected to take place in mid-December.
