The parliamentarian expressed confidence that all the lawmakers anxious about the fate of the country would vote for Pashinyan.

Pashinyan, if elected, wants to reform the electoral system to ensure it is fair before holding new parliamentary elections, the result of which would in turn help determine who becomes permanent prime minister.

Pashinyan, who is the leader of the protests that ousted Sargsyan, insisted that the political parties in the parliament should vote for him as the next interim prime minister before new snap elections. On 23 April he resigned, the responsibilities of the Prime Minister began the first Deputy Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan.
