Post-Vote Pashinyan Calls for “Total” Civil Disobedience

After the National Assembly voted 56-45 not to elect him prime minister, Nikol Pashinyan made his way to Yerevan’s Republic Square where tens of thousands of his supporters were following the confirmation hearing live, on large outdoor screens.

To a thundering applause, Pashinyan called on the people to ramp up their civil disobedience by blocking all roads, public transportation and the Zvartnots Airport.

 Pashinyan said that other than the 50 seats the Republican Party of Armenia holds in the National Assembly, the people control the rest of the country.
