On May 8, Nikol Pashinyan, the man who spearheaded the peaceful demonstrations, was elected Prime Minister of the post-Soviet republic.
Nikol Pashinian becomes the country's new prime minister after a month of protests and a climbdown by the ruling party.
The people have changed the political game in Armenia, but just who is the new prime Minister Nikol Pashinian?
The leader of the protest movement that has rocked Armenia has called a pause in the campaign of civil disobedience while he seeks assurances that the ruling party will back him to be the next prime minister.
With the ruling party-dominated parliament and the opposition clashing head-on, there appears no prospect of an early resolution to the poitical crisis.
Nikol Pashinyan urged protesters to shut down transport systems after the ruling Republican Party's parliamentary majority rejected his candidacy for prime minister.
Peaceful protests have continued in Armenia as Pashniyan supporters demand that he is elected prime minister despite him not having the support of parliament.
