    A spokesman for Armenia's ruling party announced they will not nominate a candidate for prime minister.

    He says it is an effort to avoid stoking more tension in the region.

    Meanwhile, the anti-government movement behind weeks of protests is demanding the election of their leader Nikol Pashinyan.
