Tigran Sargsyan’s resignation resulted by domestic pressure, says political analyst (video)

The resignation of Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan was the result of domestic pressure, says political analyst Levon Shirinyan.

“Though the authorities are trying to deny the fact, this is the reality. The activation of civil movements and formation of the opposition quartet in the recent year led to the premier’s resignation. Authorities always yield when they feel pressure,” he said.

The expert says the government should be changed entirely from top to bottom.

Political analyst Shushan Khatlamajyan says the next premier should be a candidate with an extensive experience in the political domain. “He should be an ordinary politician figure, have political willpower and ability to pressure others –someone whose name will be speculated as the country’s next president,” she said.
