Pashinyan is negotiating with HHK over the snap Parliamentary elections. They want to delay it to 2022 because they’re afraid of a total opposition defeat, while Pashinyan says the law requires 1/3rd of Parliament to be opposition, which means Yerevan-style election results are practically impossible, and that the worst case scenario for HHK and other opposition is to have a 33% representation, which is the same ratio that the parliament has today. HHK says for snap election to take place, all other parties would have to agree too. ARF doesn’t want to wait until 2022, but won’t agree to have one this year either http://www.armtimes.com/hy/article/145379 —- http://panarmenian.net/m/arm/news/260689
