Supporters of Armenia's opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan rallied in the capital on Sunday, hoping that a massive show of force two days ahead of a parliamentary vote will help propel him to power.
Pashinyan, a lawmaker with the Elk faction, may become Armenia's prime minister in case he scores the votes of 53 out of 105 lawmakers (simple majority).
Note that the extension was agreed at today's meeting of the faction members with Pashinyan. The ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) decided not to field a candidate.
The opposition, consisting of Tsarukyan's Prosperous Armenia Party, the Yelk (Way Out) block, of which Pashinyan's Civil Contract Party is a part, and the Armenian Revolutionary Federation, hold 47 seats in total.
