Armenian citizens cast their ballots in snap parliamentary elections in Yerevan on Sunday. The early elections follow the resignation of now-acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on October 10.

A total of 2,010 polling stations are open with 2.57 million citizens eligible to vote. Rule of Law party leader Artur Baghdasaryan was seen voting and casting his ballot at a polling station in Yerevan.

Nine parties and two pre-election blocs are listed on the ballot. The My Step Alliance spearheaded by Pashinyan is the favourite to win, according to opinion polls.

According to the country’s constitution, a political organisation that secures the majority of votes is to form a government and choose the prime minister.

Over 23,000 local and 500 foreign observers from eight organisations including the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights, the Parliamentary assembly of the Council of Europe, and the CIS Interparliamentary Assembly are monitoring the election.
