"Negotiations should be held in the presence of reporters", Pashinyan stressed. To the question of Radio Azatutyun of what task Karapetyan is resolving not attending negotiations, the oppositionist answered: "I think that Karen Karapetyan is simply not confident in his negotiating abilities, and if a person is not confident in his negotiating abilities in his homeland, how is he is going to hold talks on the Karabakh issue?". According to Pashinyan, either he is elected prime minister or no one is.

Karapetyan suggested Pashinyan should accept the President Armen Sargsyan's suggestion that all parliamentary and non-parliamentary powers "come together and discuss the current situation in the country and the ways to resolve it".

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Erdogan have taken similar action to acheive what much of the world views as dictatorships.

The Kremlin elaborated on the contents of the conversation in a statement.

Armenia's ruling elite has been scrambling to try to appease the protesters for days and the parliamentary speaker said on Thursday parliament would elect a new interim prime minister on May 1. The parliament is scheduled to elect prime minister on May 1.

A spokesman for the HKK said the party decided not to nominate its own candidate in order "to avoid confrontation and destabilization of the country".

Pashinyan's meeting with Karapetyan was canceled for the second time. "This is an awakening where people demand more freedom, people demand more transparency from the government". "The victory of the people must be recognised", Pashinyan, who has led the daily street protests, was quoted as saying at a rally in the town of Ijevan. The other challenge the former newspaper editor and political prisoner faces is from oligarch Gagik Tsarukyan who is the founder and head of the Prosperous Armenia party (also know simply as Tsarukyan), which has 31 seats in parliament.

After talks with Pashinyan on Sunday, parliamentary leader of the Republican Party, Vahram Baghdasaryan, said the party would not "impede the election of the people's candidate" if all three opposition factions in parliament supported him. Many participants of the protest hold the Armenian national flag.

Small protests loosely organised around the slogan "No to Serzh" began in March. He called to block all the streets in the city, and the entrances to the city. Sargsyan was supposedly nominated again for the position Prime Minister despite having previously served two terms, something that protesters would not tolerate and proceeded to demonstrate.

Parliament is due to pick a new prime minister on May 1.
