In his video message, he said that he will continue to perform his duties until the early parliamentary elections. Nikol Pashinyan also noted that the ruling Civil Contract party will take part in the early parliamentary elections to be held on June 20.
"The Civil Contract Party will take part in the elections. I will be nominated for the post of Prime Minister of Armenia," Pashinyan said.
He noted that "only the people will decide the future of the country through an honest and fair vote."
At the end of December 2020, Nikol Pashinyan proposed holding early parliamentary elections.
On February 25, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan announced an attempted military coup after the General Staff of the Armenian Armed Forces demanded the resignation of the government and the prime minister. The Armenian army expressed strong protest over the dismissal of the military leader and called on the government led by Prime Minister Pashinyan to step down.
