Yerevan: Protesters Call On Mayor to JoinThem”

Sargsyan served as Armenia's president from 2008 until stepping down because of term limits.

He advised that MPs from the Yelk faction brought their colleague Nikol Pashinyan who is leading the protest from the streets to the parliament.

And on Tuesday, police detained several demonstrators from the streets of Yerevan.

It said due to the unpredictable nature of the protests, there could be a potential for violence and for the safety of USA citizens in Armenia and therefore it is recommended that they avoid the areas directly affected by these protests and continue to monitor local media for further information.

"But in fact on April 9, when his second and final term as president ended, his party, the Republican Party of Armenia nominated his candidacy and today in a vote in parliament he was elected as prime minister, effectively giving him a third term as leader of the country", she said from Yerevan.

President Armen Sarkisian, who is not related to Serzh Sarkisian, issued a statement the same day warning against disturbances.

Human Rights Watch urged the Armenian authorities to refrain from the use of force against demonstrators, noting that in the past few years police have repeatedly used violent force in Yerevan, mainly to disperse peaceful rallies. He has maintained warm ties with Russian Federation, which Armenia relies on for aid and investment more than a quarter-century after the Soviet collapse. "Later in the evening, Putin had a telephone call with Sargsyan and congratulated him for being elected as a Prime Minister". Sargsyan was appointed prime minister of Armenia on April 17, 2018.
