Armenia: Lawmakers in Armenia trigger early parliamentary election | Reuters

Pashinyan, a former opposition leader who took power in May after a popular uprising, has long sought a new vote for parliament, which is still made up of members elected before demonstrators pushed the former ruling party out of power.
