"The internal political crisis, which started in Armenia on November 9, is over. Starting tomorrow, we will work as usual. And we must understand that the conditions and the [political] climate in the country has changed significantly, because the people gave us a mandate to impose a dictatorship of the law in the country," Pashinyan said.
He also noted, that, in the past three years, the Armenian people "carried out two revolutions."
Last Sunday, snap parliamentary elections took place in Armenia. According to the Central Electoral Commission, Pashunyan’s Civil Contract party came first, with 53.92% of votes, with a voter turnout of 49.4%.
