a historic day and i mean you know. who will replace him who will replace the prime minister. well it's not clear at the moment what exactly will happen next but there need to be both a legal and a political process so with the new constitution there has the prime minister has resigned but the party is still in power in parliament but the opposition leader has called for a process with a transitional government that will receive a vote of no confidence. in a new elections which will be free and fair soledad that process has remained to be seen. bring us up to date on the back ground into this why did people love the prime minister to go after such political figures in armenia and from issues of credibility and legitimacy say sarkis not themselves have been
7:07 pm
president for ten years serving two full terms meanwhile he himself initiated a new constitution and he promised never to aspire from either shit under the new regime but lastly he would themselves install the prime minister in effect starting the third term of power so this is probably too much and it brought people on the street never before. as you mentioned such i was in power as president and then became prime minister i wonder what is the state of politics like the almost this opposition movement which has brought him down is that a healthy democracy in armenia people going to have to start from the ground up. i have trouble making predictions but one outcome of this entire process could be the beginning. real reforms the kind of thing that will take generations of work so having free and fair elections or having more inclusive politics these are
7:08 pm
systemic reforms that will require strong political will is very hard to say right now but this is a massive turnout result in movement in that direction and that will be the only benefit of a country that will be a lasting victory i mean it of course is a form of soviet state how is russia likely to view this latest development well in fact we already have a statement from r.t. as a person of the russian foreign ministry who expresses general support for the people of armenia russia is always with the people of armenia she stated armenia russia and europe close relations regardless they have strong ties strong economic military and political ties no matter who is going to be in already had found that it unlikely to change. not exist yet about thank you
