At least 20,000 rally in Armenian capital to back protest leader’s PM bid: AFP 

Yerevan (AFP) – At least 20,000 supporters of Armenia’s opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan rallied in the centre of the Armenian capital on Tuesday as he warned lawmakers in parliament of major unrest if they did not elect him prime minister.

Chanting “Pashinyan is prime minister!” demonstrators gathered in Yerevan’s central square where they watched a live video stream from the nail-biting parliamentary session on a giant screen, an AFP journalist reported.
