"The Republican Party is thinking about taking advantage of Serzh Sargsyan's resignation and wants to keep power", Pashinyan said in a video appeal posted on Facebook on April 24.

Pashinyan sported his trademark khaki-coloured T-shirt and clutched a megaphone as protesters chanted "Nikol for prime minister" and "We are the masters of our country".

Pashinyan's renewed protests came after negotiations with acting Prime Minister Karen Karapetian aimed at defusing tensions, originally scheduled for April 25, were called off, with Karapetian saying he rejected preconditions laid down by Pashinyan. He vowed to complete his declared "velvet revolution" one day after forcing the HHK's chairman, Serzh Sarkisian, to resign as prime minister.

He said he specifically demanded that the talks involve not only Karapetian but also parliament speaker Ara Babloyan and the parliamentary leader of the ruling Republican Party (HHK), Vahram Baghdasarian.
