In a similar session a week before, all but one of the Republicans voted against him in an apparent last-ditch effort to retain power.

Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian faces an array of challenges, including a parliament dominated by the party he denounced as corrupt and how to resolve the volatile question of Nagorno-Karabakh, a region of Azerbaijan under the control of ethnic Armenian forces. However, Armenia has changed its government structure, giving the prime minister more power than the presidency. "The Republican Party's votes will go towards making up for any votes missing from the 53 needed for the election of a prime minister", member of parliament Samvel Farmanyan said.

Pashinian has threatened to stage another general strike if the HHK fails to vote for his candidacy on May 8.

"All people are equal before the law, period!" he said.

"The leadership will not be a means to earn money".

Pashinyan said the protest movement empowered ordinary Armenians, showing them they could determine the future of their country.

Pashinian further reaffirmed his plans to push for fresh parliamentary elections.

"On the other hand, as the protest movement has shown, he can be flexible", he said. "You won today", he told the jubilant crowd chanting "Nikol!" and "Victory!" His deputy, Karen Karapetyan, was named acting prime minister. "Tomorrow.will be the day of the victory of Armenian citizens". He also has a long history of political activism.

Pashinyan is the only candidate for the top job. The group called Impeachment failed to win any parliament seats.

He has publicly fallen out with other opposition leaders such as the former president Levon Ter-Petrosyan.
