The HHK's parliamentary leader, Vahram Baghdasarian, made clear just before the vote that his party still has serious doubts about Pashinian's ability to govern Armenia but will nonetheless help him become prime minister in order to restore "political stability" in the country.
After failing to get enough votes from the National Assembly, Pashinyan called on supporters to block streets, airports, the railway and other public transportation.
In a referendum in 2015, Armenia adopted constitutional changes to move the powers from the president to the prime minister. But his Republican party, which holds a majority in parliament, thwarted Pashinyan's first bid to replace him.
