Snap parliamentary elections were held in Armenia on 9 December 2018, as none of the parties in the National Assembly were able to put forward and then elect a candidate for Prime Minister in the two-week period following Nikol Pashinyan’s resignation on 16 October 2018.
It was the first general election since the Velvet Revolution in April-May 2018, and the country’s first ever snap parliamentary elections.
A total of 2,573,779 voters were registered to take part in the election.
