YEREVAN. – The elections in 2018 were exceptional, in terms of content, since the people were for the first time electing not solely the parliament, but also a Prime Minister with the powers of the head of the country.
Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on Tuesday said the abovementioned at the National Assembly, as he presented the five-year program of the Government of Armenia.
He thanked everyone who voted for the My Step Alliance and for him, personally, as well as all those who cast their ballots in the snap parliamentary election but voted for other political forces.
“As a candidate for Prime Minister, it’s a great honor for me to get the mandate of trust by the people,” Pashinyan noted. “I consider myself the Prime Minister of not just those people who voted for My Step Alliance, but also of those who voted for other political forces—or in general, have come to the elections—since my mission is to serve the people, the homeland, and the state.”
