Khachik Galstyan, a senior member of the opposition Homeland Party, and his family members has joined a car rally from Yerevan to Vanadzor, Armenia’s third largest city, to demand the resignation of Nikol Pashinyan and his cabinet.
The rally organized by the opposition forces was to start on Saturday morning.
Speaking to reporters, Galstyan expressed conviction that many people would take part in it.
He says thousands of people have heeded the wake-up call made by the opposition a few weeks ago.
“Hundreds of thousands of citizens are going through an awakening process. They are all inspired by the ideas of national liberation movement," the oppositionist said.
Galstyan attached importance to acts of civil disobedience also in the country’s regions.
"I believe that our citizens will join us, we, united as a single fist, will drive out the external enemy and the adventurers in Armenia, who are torpedoing its development and the development of Artsakh, and will build the Armenia of our dreams," he said.
An opposition rally is expected to kick off in Vanadzor at 1pm.
