Ahead of PM vote Armenia's HHK concedes monopolising power was a mistake

This is reported by Armenian news.

Noting that many corruption scandals in the world are offshore deals and money overseas, he proposed to establish a special state agency, for example, the ethics committee, for controlling accounts of Armenian officials at any spot all over the world.

On Tuesday, Armenia's parliament held a special session to elect a new prime minister. He is the only candidate for this position.

Tsarukyan Alliance, Armenia's second largest parliamentary faction, and the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) Dashnakstutyun have voiced their support for Pashinyan's candidacy. - Armenian opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan was engaged in high-stakes talks with the ruling party ahead of a key parliamentary vote, inching closer to taking power after two weeks of protests that transformed the country's political landscape.

"They spat on us, but we're not going to tolerate this", bakery owner Samvel Rustamyan, 46, said while jeering and punching his fists in the air.

Armenian opposition supporters hold portraits and placards as they attend a rally in Yerevan on April 30, 2018.

Nikol Pashinyan will be elected if the majority of the 105 MPs vote for him.

The 42-year-old led the mass demonstrations that sparked last week's resignation of veteran leader Serzh Sarkisian, who had just been voted premier with sweeping powers after serving as president for a decade.

On Sunday, RPA faction head Vahram Bagdasaryan said that the party would not impede Pashinyan's election.

The opposition in this Caucasus Mountains country saw Sargsyan's move into the prime minister's chair as an attempt by him to stay in power indefinitely.

Before the vote, lawmakers grilled Pashinyan during a question-and-answer session.

"We will block the streets, the airports, the metro, the railway, everything that can be blocked", Pashinyan told his cheering supporters on Yerevan's Republic Square. Some said Pashinyan does not have a program to offer the country.
