    Armenia’s prime minister has faced months of protests and several attempts in parliament to dismiss him.

    But despite the growing discontent over his handling of the war with Azerbaijan in Nagorno Karabakh, Nikol Pashinyan has been defiant.

    Now the army is demanding he leave office.

    He’s fired the army chief and accused the military of an attempted coup.

    Pashinyan says the army should not be involved in the political process and has rallied his supporters behind him.

    His opponents have held a rival rally, and set up a camp outside the parliament to pressure him to quit the job.
