The opposition in the Caucasus Mountains country saw Mr Sargsyan's move into the prime minister's chair as an attempt to stay in power indefinitely.

The parliamentary majority, held by the Republican Party of Armenia (RPA), has not announced yet how it will vote.

Sargsyan was forced to resign after tens of thousands of people flooded the streets in the capital of Yerevan and other cities and towns to protest his political maneuvering to cling to power despite repeated promises not to run for the position of the prime minister.

"Mr Pashinyan has failed to convince us", Bagdasaryan said.

"It showed once again that they don't care about us, about the ordinary people", said Gurgen, a 61-year-old unemployed man who was among the crowd.

Pashinyan, who spearheaded the mass protests that led to the resignation of the veteran leader Sezh Sarkisian last month, has insisted that only he can rid the poor ex-Soviet nation of corruption and poverty and conduct free and fair elections.
