Pashinyan intends to continue resistance actions until administration changes in Armenia

YEREVAN. May 2 (Interfax) - Nikol Pashinyan, leader of Armenia's protest movement and head of the opposition parliamentary faction Elk, said he intends to broaden civil resistance actions in the country until the country's administration changes.

"All motorways leading to Yerevan have now been closed to traffic. It's unprecedented. Our tactics are to increase pressure until the administration changes,' Pashinyan said on Radio Liberty on Wednesday.

The new election of the prime minister is expected to be held in a week, and an extraordinary election will be called if it fails, he said.

"We are ready for any scenarios. It is now not important at all what is happening in the offices, what matters is what is happening here, in the streets," Pashinyan said.
