Dozens injured in Armenia rallies against ex-president

Parliament, which is dominated by the ruling party, is to decide on Tuesday whether to install Sarkysan as prime minister.

Police has called on Pashinyan to comply with RA Law on the Freedom of Assembly or end the rally. Unlike previous post-Soviet presidents in Armenia, Armen Sarkisian was elected by parliament instead of by popular vote. But Pashinian later returned - sporting a bandaged arm - and vowed to continue the demonstrations.

Some protesters chanted "Armenia without Serzh" and "Serzh is a liar". On Monday morning, April 16, protesters blocked bridges, streets and underground stations to protest Sargsyan's candidacy.

Earlier this week, two opposition lawmakers set off smoke flares in parliament to protest plans for Serzh Sarkisian to become prime minister.

Several protests loosely organised around the slogan "No to Serzh", have been held since March. Protesters have been gathering in front of the ruling Republican Party's headquarters since 9 April, when acting Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan announced that Serzh Sargsyan would replace him. Some built barricades using cast-iron benches and metal trash cans. "No one will prevent us from voting tomorrow for our candidate Serzh Sarkisian", he told AFP.

Rallies began on Friday when more than 4,000 people took part. The Constitution of Armenia was changed, transforming it from presidential to a parliamentary state.
