YEREVAN. – Instead of taking the stigma of the “loser” on himself, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan is trying to blame everyone: the National Assembly, the public, the Armed Forces, the National Security Service, the generals. He is ready to devalue all the structures, just to stay in the post of Prime Minister. Gevorg Gorgisyan, Secretary of the Bright Armenia opposition faction, said this during Thursday’s National Assembly special session debates on the bill on the lifting of the current martial law in the country.
Moreover, the MP expressed the hope that Pashinyan, nevertheless, will show wisdom and will resign.
Gorgisyan stressed that the incumbent PM should resign from his post, thus allowing the state and the Armenian people to get out of this difficult situation stronger.
On November 9, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, and Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a joint statement on a complete cessation of hostilities— which Azerbaijan had launched on September 27—in and around Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh). Accordingly, Russian peacekeepers are deployed in the region to monitor the implementation of the ceasefire and the cessation of hostilities. But this statement also stipulates the handover of part of Artsakh lands to Azerbaijan.
