Armenia Marks Anniversary Of Massacre Day After Sarkisian's Resignation

Armenia Marks Anniversary Of Massacre Day After Sarkisian's Resignation

Tanrisever also said the possible effects of Sargsyan's resignation on Turkey and Azerbaijan were not clear yet.

In 2015, Sargsyan and his Republican Party initiated a referendum to amend the Constitution, as a result of which Armenia became a parliamentary republic and the majority of powers were transferred from the president to the premier. "We showed to the entire world that our country's destiny is in hands of Armenian people".

"Hysterical appeals of the former Sargsyan regime's elements that allegedly the Azerbaijani side accumulates military equipment and personnel on the contact line do not reflect reality, and rely on last year's information".

Carmelo Anthony seems to still have hope that the Thunder can pull off the improbable, but they've gotta have the belief. There was so much talk of the Jazz's playoff experience, or lack thereof, but in Game 4, it was the Thunder who unwound.

Protests broke out several days before his expected election, with tens of thousands of people eventually taking to the streets of Yerevan and other cities in largely peaceful protests. The celebrations capped almost two weeks of anti-government protests that followed Sargsyan's appointment to the newly powerful post of prime minister, after he held power as president for the maximum of two 5-year terms.

In a speech to jubilant supporters on the eve after Sargsyan's resignation, Pashinyan declared that "the velvet revolution was victorious" and demanded that a "people's prime minister" be selected to lead an interim government until new elections could be held. Upon hearing of his resignation, protesters in Yerevan shouted in jubilation, auto horns honked, and Armenian news outlets showed pictures of men dancing in the streets.

Armenia has moved closer to Moscow under Sargsyan, joining Russia's Eurasian Economic Union in 2013, thereby thwarting negotiations for an association agreement with the European Union.

After Sargsyan's resignation, his post is temporarily occupied by his deputy Karen Karapetyan, former prime minister and former senior executive of Russian gas giant Gazprom.

Pashinyan's Civil Contract party, a member of the Yelk (way out) opposition block, has only three seats in the current parliament, including his own.

The liberal opposition was incensed, accusing Sargsyan of implementing the system change to circumvent the two-term limit. Protests erupted across the small country, with people demanding that opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan instead be given a chance to lead. "The goal was to mislead the society", Hajiyev said.
