Armenia ruling coalition formally nominates ex-president Sargsyan's candidacy as next PM

Another civil disobedience demonstration has begun in Yerevan.

Young people in small groups have been blockading transport routes in the streets; garbage bins are used as barricades.

Protesters took to the streets after opposition leader Nikol Pashinian called on Armenians to stage rallies to prevent Sarkisian's political transition.

The day before, leader of the opposition party "Civil Contract" Nikol Pashinyan presented his plan to cordon off areas in Yerevan.

"Our workplace is the National Assembly", he said.

Meeting in the resort town of Tsakhkadzor today the Executive Body and the Board of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (HHK) has formally made a decision to nominate the party chairman Serzh Sargsyan for the post of prime minister.

In a statement issued early on April 16, police said the protests were illegal and warned that law enforcement had the authority to forcibly "discontinue" street gatherings accompanied by "collective breaches of public order". Pashinyan has spoken on several occasions, apologising to Yerevan residents for the inconvenience, but he says that it is only in this way that the movement can free them from other "unpleasant inconveniences".

There were media reports that Tuesday's NA special session to elect the PM would not be convened in the parliament building.

The 63-year-old ended his second and final presidential term last week and has been nominated by the ruling party for the post of prime minister.
