YEREVAN, April 16. /TASS/. The Yerevan police used riot control methods against protesters who attempted to climb through barbed wire to make their way to the Armenian parliament. Several demonstrators have been injured, a TASS correspondent reported from the scene.

The protesters were encouraged to act by Armenian MP Nikol Pashinyan, leader of the opposition Civil Contract party.

On Tuesday, the Armenian parliament will vote on the nation’s new prime minister.  The ruling Republican party of Armenia nominated Serzh Sargsyan, who on April 9 had concluded his 10-year tenure as president of the country. The opposition is launching acts of protest in order to undermine the election.
