Former Member of Armenia's Constitutional Court Declares Hunger Strike, Demands Pashinyan's Resignation
A former member of Armenia’s Constitutional Court has gone on hunger strike in Yerevan, outside the Government Building, demanding the resignation of Nikol Pashinyan, the country’s prime minister.
Kim Balayan accuses Pashinyan of violating Armenia’s constitution when he signed a truce agreement with Russia and Azerbaijan on November 9.
"Article 116 of our constitution clearly defines what an international treaty is, that issues should be regulated by an international treaty,” says Balayan.
Balayan argues that the truce agreement should have been reviewed by the constitutional court and ratified by the parliament.
He says that that the document contains points that can be deemed unconstitutional.
