Protestors block parliament building in Yerevan
Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 2
A large number of citizens have gathered in front of the Armenian parliament in Yerevan to protest against amendments to the parliament’s regulations that had been just adopted by the lawmakers, Armenian media reports Oct. 2.
Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan arrived in Baghramyan Avenue.
Meanwhile, the bill suggests considering the parliament session postponed so that dissolution of the parliament could be avoided.
Earlier in the day the Armenian parliament pushed through controversial bill on rules of procedure with 67 votes ‘for’ and one vote ‘against’. Armenian PM called on the citizens to gather in Baghramyan Avenue and surround the building of the parliament.
Pashinyan said that the adoption of the bill would mean "the official beginning of the counter-revolution."
