Armenia: Opposition protests continue in Yerevan

Thousands of people took to the streets of Yerevan on Sunday to participate in a fresh wave of anti-government protests, despite the ruling Republican Party's (RPA's) decision not to nominate a candidate for the post of Prime Minister.

Protesters blocked the roadways of the Armenian capital’s main streets and marched towards Republic Square, where opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan is expected to address his supporters in the evening.

Protesters blocked the main streets in the centre of Yerevan and demonstrators sat on pedestrian crossings.

Armenians have been on the streets since April 13, after the ruling RPA nominated former President Serzh Sargsyan for the prime minister's post. On April 23, Sargsyan stepped down after a few days in his new post, stating that "the street movement was against" him.
