A thousands-strong column of protesters are protesting in Yerevan, Armenia. It is expected that the opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan will join them. The protesters beat drums and play instruments, carry national flags. Motorists support the protesters with honks.
According to the participants of the march, they intend to walk along the central streets and at 19:00 (18:00 Moscow time) to start a rally on the Republic Square. A small number of policemen are also moving with the column.
The Armenian parliament will re-elect a new prime minister on May 1. This position is tentatively claimed by Pashinyan, who remained the only candidate, since all other factions refused to nominate their candidates. To be elected, he must get 53 out of 105 votes of parliamentarians.
