Reading Time: < 1 minute

Armenian Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan has resigned after days of large-scale street protests against him.

Opposition supporters accused Mr Sargsyan of clinging to power when he was appointed prime minister last Tuesday, soon after finishing two five-year terms as president.

The street movement is against my tenure. I am fulfilling your demand,” he said in a statement.

It was not clear when his resignation would take effect.
