Archbishop Bagrat Galstanyan, leader of the opposition Tavush for the Homeland movement, and his supporters are holding a protest action on Marshal Baghramyan Avenue, which runs along the main entrance of the NA building. 

The question-and-answer session with the government will begin shortly in the NA, and PM Nikol Pashinyan also will be in attendance.

The protests and civil disobedience actions by the opposition Tavush for the Homeland movement, led by Archbishop Bagrat Galstanyan, had started in Armenia after it became known on April 19 that Armenia and Azerbaijan had agreed to start border delimitation at Tavush Province of Armenia. After holding subsequent demonstrations in Kirants village of Tavush Province for days, Archbishop Galstanyan had announced that he was going to march to Yerevan to demand the resignation of PM Nikol Pashinyan. Arriving in the Armenian capital on May 9, Galstanyan held a large rally demanding Pashinyan's resignation. And during the rally on May 26, the transitional government was announced, whose PM candidate is Archbishop Bagrat Galstanyan.
