BREAKING NEWS: Amidst PM Nikol Pashinyan’s Facebook Post, “My Step” Party Members Resign, Including Two Members Of Parliament.

Following Nikol Pashinyan’s Facebook post, Armenia’s Human Rights Defender Arman Tatoyan noted the toxicity the post entails. In addition, four “My Step” party members this far have resigned from their party, including a senior advisor to the deputy prime minister and two MPs, including Serge Varak Sisserian, Gayane Abrahamyan, and Taguhi Tovmasyan. Neil Hauer, a political pundit on the Caucasus tweeted, that Pashinyan’s Facebook post, “Implies that Armenian soldiers at the front should come to Yerevan and deal with opposition-led protests.”

Member of Parliament Gayane Abrahamyan has resigned from the “My Step” faction.

Her post reads as follows:

“Dear compatriots,

These days I have tried to make every effort to alleviate the situation a little and prevent the worst, but from now on

I consider what I have to do as a deputy of the RA National Assembly exhausted.

I apologize for the many mistakes.”

It should be reminded that she had already announced his resignation once and submitted an application to the NA Speaker on September 25 of this year, but in the conditions of the beginning of the war he had withdrawn the application for the time being.

As last time, so now Gayane Abrahamyan did not mention the reason for resigning from the mandate.

Member of Parliament Taguhi Tovmasyan has resigned from the “My Step” faction due to a disagreement over Prime Minister NIkol Pashinyan’s most recent Facebook post.

Her post reads as follows:

“In the morning I will submit an application to leave the NA “My Step” faction. Our political team makes mistake after mistake. Instead of realizing our mistakes, correcting the situation through dialogue, trying to stabilize the tension in our country, on the contrary, we are taking steps that undermine the foundations of the state. I will speak about the rest from the NA tribune.

Dear compatriots, I want to emphasize that I do not give up my parliamentary mandate. From now on I will act as an independent deputy. I was elected by the rating system, I have work to do in the region.

Serge Varak Sisserian, the deputy of the office of the Deputy Prime Minister of Armenia Tigran Avinyan has submitted his resignation and announced the termination of his membership in the “Civil Contract” party.

His post reads as follows:

“Dear compatriots,

I am deciding after the last post of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan

1-Write a resignation application

2-Terminate the membership in the Civil Contract Party

I thank Deputy Prime Minister Tigran Avinyan for entrusting me with such a responsible job and for managing the staff.”

PM Nikol Pashinyan’s post reads as follows:

“I watched dozens of videos of soldiers from the front line today. I am amazed by the boys’ insight.

Guys, you are right. I am waiting for you in Yerevan to finally solve the problems of those who are crying under the walls.

I am proud of you.”

Member of Parliament Lusine Badalyan says that if the faction does not take immediate action that she will resign from the “My Step” faction.

Her post reads as follows:

“During the last nightmarish days, I hoped that we could change something, reap the maximum in the current situation, for the benefit of the Republic of Armenia, with cold judgment, with a united force, for that I was ready to invest everything, because the country is in great danger … because internal stability is the most important.

Now, I address the NA Speaker, Mr. Ararat Mirzoyan.

I wrote my application that fateful night, you remember, but when there was violence against you, I took it back because it would at least be unfair to leave you alone in that state.

After the last post of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia, I have to make a decision ով I hope you will understand me as your student friend, as a person who has sometimes even gone through a difficult journey with you.

If My Step does not take immediate action at this time, I will resign.

Thank you for your understanding.”
