The Republican Party of Armenia (RPA)-Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) Dashnaktsutyun Party ruling coalition’s parliamentary session on Monday, and with respect to nominating ex-President Serzh Sargsyan as the next Prime Minister, lasted about five minutes.

Axar.az reports citing news.am.

Vahram Baghdasaryan, head of the RPA faction at the National Assembly (NA), assured that the next PM’s election will take place in the parliament building.

In accordance with the amendments to the Constitution introduced in 2015, it is the first time when Armenia chooses the president not by way of nationwide elections, but by voting in the National Assembly. Since the Republic has adopted to the parliamentary form of government, the prime minister becomes the first official of the state, and the powers of the president have significantly decreased.
