Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has announced that he will resign next month while staying in office until snap parliamentary elections due on June 20, as part of an effort to curb the political crisis gripping the Caucasus country, APA reports citing RIA.
"I will resign in April. I will resign not to resign, but in order for early elections to take place," Pashinyan said on Sunday during a visit to northwest Armenia, according to a video published on his Facebook page.
"I will continue to serve as interim prime minister," he added.
The prime minister earlier this month announced snap parliamentary polls that he said were "the best way out of the current internal political situation".
