Armenian opposition MP injured during clashes with police

Протесты охватили еще один город в Армении

Starting on Monday, a swelling crowd of protesters began shutting down Yerevan, blocking streets and encircling state institutions.

During his address, Sargsyan urged MPs to "put every effort in order to bring your colleague (Pashinyan) back to parliament from the streets".

Armenian opposition groups say around 30 of its supporters were detained when police tried to break up a protest.

The Prime Minister shall, within a period of five days following his or her appointment, propose to the President of the Republic candidates for Deputy Prime Ministers and Ministers.

Sargsyan, who served as Armenia's president from 2008 until earlier this year when he stepped down because of term limits, is set to be approved as prime minister on Tuesday.

Sarkisian will remain the ex-Soviet country's leader under a new parliamentary system of government, which the opposition says has been created to maintain his chokehold on power.

During the clashes in the city several other protesters and policemen were injured as well.

Armenia's Ministry of Health reported that 46 people received medical treatment on Monday, including six police officers, with one person in serious condition.

The police statement threatens the use of force to disperse protestors should people not leave the streets.

Protests are expected to grow larger after Pashinian called on people to take part in "the largest rally in Armenia's history" on Tuesday evening.

Today marks the fifth day of a civil disobedience movement against the continuation of ex-president Serzh Sargsyan's rule, now as the country's Prime Minister.

"If I am elected, it won't be the third government term of Serzh Sargsyan, but rather the first term of a Republican Party of Armenia government in a parliamentary Armenia", he said.

Tensions in Armenia often flare up during presidential and parliamentary elections. At least eight people died in clashes with the authorities.

Local media report that before he was officially sworn in, Mr Sargsyan told parliament that under the new constitution the prime minister would be "under parliament's control and can be replaced for political reasons".
