Armenian opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan Wednesday called for an end to a huge wave of protests and said all parties would support his bid to run for prime minister again next week.Lawmakers will convene on May 8 for a new extraordinary session of Parliament to elect a prime minister, after the ruling Republican Party on Tuesday voted against a bid by Pashinyan, the hugely popular opposition leader, to take power."The Republicans are doing everything to retain a majority in Parliament," analyst Manvel Sargsyan said. The crisis, he added, would not end even if Pashinyan was elected prime minister because the ruling party will likely sabotage his initiatives in Parliament.In Parliament, lawmakers could not convene for a session due to insufficient numbers, with the Prosperous Armenia party declaring a boycott over "an emergency situation in the country".
