Pashinyan to Run in Election for Yerevan Mayor

Nikol Pashinyan, who won election to Armenia’s new parliament on April 2 running on the Yelk Alliance ticket, now says he wants the job of Yerevan mayor.

Pashinyan, in a Facebook post, writes that he will head Yelk’s ticket in the mayoral race scheduled for May 14.

“We are participating in the election with just one aim in mind. That is to win and assume authority of Yerevan,” Pashinyan said.

Pashinyan said the decision to run for Yerevan mayor wasn’t an easy one, given that he jusr won election to the parliament days ago.

Nevertheless, Pashinyan said the parliamentary election results showed that the people were ready to vote for change and hope.
