Armenian Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan on Monday announced his resignation after days of protests in the country, local media reported.  

Citing the Prime Ministry, local media quoted Sargsyan saying: “The street movement is against my tenure. I am fulfilling your demand.” 

After serving as Armenia’s president for two terms, Sargsyan was elected prime minister on April 17.  

A 2015 referendum backed by then-President Sargsyan transferred key elements of presidential authority to the prime minister.
