The political crisis in Armenia, which sparked on November 9, 2020, is over, Acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said at a rally, dedicated to the victory at the snap parliamentary elections. According to Pashinyan, it is now possible to start working as usual tomorrow.

“The internal political crisis, which started in Armenia on November 9, is over. Starting tomorrow, we will work as usual. And we must understand that the conditions and the [political] climate in the country has changed significantly, because the people gave us a mandate to impose a dictatorship of the law in the country”, - said Pashinyan.

Last Sunday, snap parliamentary elections took place in Armenia. According to the Central Electoral Commission, Pashunyan’s Civil Contract party came first, with 53.92% of votes, with a voter turnout of 49.4%. According to the Central Electoral Commission head Tigran Mukuchan, Pashinyan secured enough votes to form the government unilaterally.
