There will be no resignation of Pashinyan - deputy head of Armenian premier's office

YEREVAN. May 6 (Interfax) - Citizens of Armenia have made their choice, the prime minister of Armenia will not resign, the office of the Armenian president said, responding to the opposition's request for the resignation of Nikol Pashinyan and a new election.

"There will be no resignation. Citizens of Armenia made their choice just a year ago. Armenia is not an orphan that needs to demand a resignation and a new election every year," Taron Chakhoyan, deputy head of the prime minister's apparatus, said on a social network.

Anti-government actions, marches and rallies organized by the parliamentary opposition and various opposition groups have been held in Yerevan daily since April 17. A new wave of protests began in Armenia after Pashinyan's speech in the parliament on April 14, in which he spoke about the demand to "lower the bar on the issue of the status of Karabakh" and said a peace agreement should be signed with Azerbaijan.
