Armenia's interim PM Karapetyan says stepping down

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Armenian interim Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan said on Tuesday he was stepping down, after parliament elected opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan to the role.

Pashinyan was elected as Armenia’s new prime minister on Tuesday, capping a peaceful revolution driven by weeks of mass protests against corruption and cronyism in the ex-Soviet republic.
