Tankian: "The movement has taken hold and those who represent the past are now rejected"
With the opposition block joining the people's movement and the ARF ending their partnership with the Republican Party who now holds onto a slim majority in Parliament, it is inevitable that Parliament will likely appoint protest leader Nikol Pashinyan as Prime Minister of Armenia and set forth a schedule for snap Parliamentary elections. The movement has taken hold and those who represent the past are now rejected. It is important for the movement and the fragments left of the gov't to keep the peace. It is also important for everyone to start to cooperate so that there is no gap in terms of the functionality of the country. That means putting aside political differences and personality conflicts to do what's best for the people. Refraining from vendettas and making sure everything transitions smoothly. The acting PM Karen Karapetyan should show his willingness to do this and Pashinyan should take advantage of that.
