Armenia’s parliament will again try to choose a new prime minister this Tuesday, a week after the ruling party voted against opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan.


The ruling Republican party blocked Pashinyan’s bid to become prime minister on May 1, but after three weeks of demonstrations in his favour, he is likely to be chosen as prime minister by Armenian lawmakers on Tuesday.

A few hours before the Parliament's decision, France 24's correspondent Gulliver Gragg visited several towns and villages near Yerevan and on the border with Georgia, and found that Pashinyan’s support extended well beyond the capital.
