Moscow (dpa) - Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan announced Tuesday he is stepping down from office during an interview with the country‘s public television broadcaster, according to the TASS news agency.

"I am stepping down," TASS reported him as saying on Armenia‘s public television. "Naturally, this resignation is formal but, still, it is a very exciting moment."

Armenian law requires parliament to elect a new head of government within 14 days of the prime minister stepping down. If it fails to vote in favour of a new head of government after two attempts, then new parliamentary polls called.

"We guarantee fair elections," Pashinyan said.

Pashinyan, who earlier this year led street protests against what he condemned as a power grab by the former president, was elected in a 59-42 vote in parliament in May.
