Council of Europe chief congratulates Armenia's Pashinyan

The Armenian Parliament the second time elected leader of the protests, Pashinian Prime Minister of the state. Deputies from the ruling party voted for the opposition leader of street protests.

Mr Pashinyan, who had been detained and then released from jail during the protests, called for snap elections to choose a new "people's prime minister".

Addressing the parliament before the vote, Pashinian pledged to implement "very serious reforms" that would democratize Armenia, strengthen the rule of law and radically improve the domestic business environmental.

Protests were triggered after RPA chairman and Armenia's long-time leader Serzh Sargsyan who had been barred by the constitution from seeking another term as president became prime minister.

Though this vote lacked the drama of the previous week's - when the Republicans did not tip their hand about whether or not they would vote for Pashinyan - the ruling party nevertheless signaled that it did not intend to give up the fight.

His creativity was visible during a parliamentary election campaign past year, when he went into courtyards, clambered onto the roofs of garages and stood on benches to deliver speeches.

The signing of the order is a formality required by the Consitution whereby the president appoints the elected Prime Minister.

Although Armenian leaders traditionally visit the region on May 9, the date on which many ex-Soviet countries mark the defeat of Nazi Germany, Pashinian's trip is likely to provoke resentment from Azerbaijan. "Corruption will be eradicated", Pashinyan said.

After the vote, Pashinyan headed to Republic Square, the center of the protest movement that brought him to the premiership. On May 1, Pashinyan's bid to become prime minister was blocked in parliament. He said his ministers will be chosen "as a result of discussions" with his allies and other political groups.

Members of Pashinyan's Civil Contract party hailed Tuesday as a "historic day", with MP Lena Nazaryan saying it was the culmination of decades of despair and struggle.

"Russian officials have insisted that they respect Armenians' right to peaceful change", he said. "The victory is that you chose who would be prime minister".

A year later Pashinian was elected to the National Assembly on the ticket of Ter-Petrosian's Armenian National Congress (HAK).
