"Being concerned about the current situation, as the head of the executive power I appeal to the President of the Republic of Armenia to organize a meeting with a board range of parliamentary and extra-parliamentary political forces to discuss the current internal political situation and find possible ways out of it", said Karapetyan.
It was not immediately clear whether Sargsyan's exit will be followed by fresh parliamentary elections. The news of his resignation sparked celebrations across the country and within Armenian diaspora communities around the world.
A large enough response take care of Serzh Sargsyan from the post of Prime Minister.
Armenian Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan stepped down on Monday amid large-scale protests against corruption and his rule, a move that could potentially alter the former Soviet republic's reliance on Russian Federation.
Prime Minister Serzh Sarksyan resigned on Monday after nearly two weeks of street protests prompted by accusations he had manipulated the constitution to cling to power.
But following a referendum in 2015, Armenia transitioned from an executive presidency with Sargsyan at the helm to a parliamentary system led by the prime minister and his Cabinet. "If he (Pashinyan) is the people's choice, that means the people will choose him". When police began to rough up and detain protestors, the demonstrations in the capital grew, drawing as many as 100,000 people, according to some estimates. Recognizing that many Armenians felt drawn to Europe, as well as his country's increasing trade ties with the European Union, in 2017 Sargsyan negotiated a substitute deal with Brussels to replace the Association Agreement he abandoned four years earlier. I am aware of the statements and stances of civil movement leader Nikol Pashinyan and acting Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan about the suspension of the negotiations which were planned for this morning.

Political turmoil enveloped the landlocked country of 2.9 million people after Sarkisian was elected prime minister by lawmakers after serving two successive presidential terms.
"We have not seen a change of a political elite yet", said Ruben Megrabyan of the Armenian Center for Global Studies.
The ruling Armenian Republican Party's faction has 58 seats in the parliament, Elk and Dashnaktsutyun have 9 and 7, respectively. For almost 30 years, Armenia has also been in a state of war with neighboring Azerbaijan over an Armenian-dominated territory called Nagorno-Karabakh.
The Armenian constitution gives parliamentary parties seven days to propose candidates for prime minister. Crowds rallied to oppose Sargsyan's new role as prime minister, perceiving it as a maneuver to cling to power.
"We were able to achieve Serzh Sargsyan's resignation, and we will be able to keep Karen Karapetyan and the Republicans from their plans to seize the victory of the people", says Pashinyan.
