11 leaders meet for pre-election debate – Video

Ten days into the election campaign, the Armenian Public TV hosts the first-ever debates in Armenian history after a 15-year break. The leaders of all eleven forces running for Parliament have agreed to participate in the televised debate. The debate will last for about three hours, but the time will be extended, if necessary.

Armenia will hold early parliamentary elections on December 9. The National Assembly was dissolved by virtue of law in ealy November after two failed attempts to elect Prime Minister. Acting PM Nikol Pashinyan’s nomination for the post was more of formal character to ensure the constitutionality of the process. Pashinyan resigned on October 16 to trigger early parliamentary elections.
