Newspaper: Armenia PM insinuates that he will resist until fall if opposition does not go for snap elections

Past daily of Armenia daily writes: Yesterday, [PM] Nikol Pashinyan also had convened a rally in parallel with the opposition, which was considered an "assembly of show of force" even behind the scenes of the government.

Despite the unprecedented administrative resources used, the number of people gathered in the Republic Square was small, and most of them were either police officers or civil servants brought to the square.

And what did Nikol Pashinyan say? Mostly nothing new. The topic of the "exes" is clear, it is permanent, he apologized—sure that it is enough—, but the meaning of the rally was, in fact, one: Nikol Pashinyan offered a distinctive "deal" to the opposition, played with their ‘honor,’ so to speak: if you are sure that the people demand my resignation, let's go for early [parliamentary] elections.

At the same time, the thesis of transition to a semi-presidential system was noteworthy. In fact, Pashinyan insinuated that in case of not going for snap [parliamentary elections], he will resist until the fall, make amendments to the Constitution, move to a semi-presidential system, and in that case, presidential elections will be held.

Even a cursory glance at social media after the rally shows that, by and large, users were assessing the rally as a staged show with nothing to say, empty words, and mostly false theses, aimed first and foremost at his [political] team to show that he stands firmly on his feet.

By the way, it is noteworthy that both during the rally and especially after the end, when Pashinyan started the march, surrounded by hundreds of policemen (there was an impression that they were more than the participants), many were quickly going from Republic Square up to [Marshal] Baghramyan Avenue to join the opposition.
