    On Sunday, Armenians will vote in a second parliamentary snap election in less than three years.

    Four political blocs and 22 parties are going up against caretaker Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, who stepped down in April following months of protests demanding his resignation.

    Many called him a traitor for signing a peace deal that ended six weeks of fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh, but returned swathes of territory to Armenia’s long-standing rival Azerbaijan.

    Four former leaders are running in Sunday’s vote, including Robert Kocharyan who’s seen as the opposition frontrunner.

    So, how will last year’s war shape the outcome?
