YEREVAN. – Irates daily of Armenia writes: Although only three of the MPs from the ruling My Step faction have come out of the faction or given up their [parliamentary] mandate following a disgraceful announcement of the November 10 capitulation, there are serious controversies within the team over the resignation of the Prime Minister [Nikol Pashinyan].
In a conversation with Irates, one of the [My Step] MPs noted: "Of course he [Pashinyan] has to go. Why should he remain [in office]? Who has seen a leader who has lost the war continue in office? (…).”
Our interlocutor assured that about 80 percent of the faction members are in favor of Pashinyan's dismissal. (…).
In a conversation with us, the representative of the halls of power clarified that Pashinyan's resignation does not mean that they will take to the streets, join those gathered at the [Liberty] square, and chant, "Nikol, leave!"
On the contrary, although Pashinyan will go [from office], they will bring another CC [ruling Civil Contract Party]] member [to office]. "Even if Pashinyan leaves, someone from our team will replace him until the snap parliamentary elections."
