Yerevan: After Pashinyan’s Election

Unlike May 1 special session of the National Assembly, which lasted over eight hours, with hundreds of thousands of citizens following the session in the Republic Square from the morning, the session invited on May 8 was short: Nikol Pashinyan was elected prime minister with 59 votes for and 42 - against. Citizens, engaged in civil disobedience acts for weeks, celebrated the victory of their candidate all day long.
