Armenia's parliament has voted 45-to-55 against opposition leader Nikol Pashinian as the country's next prime minister, leaving him eight votes short of the simple majority he needed to win the post.
With the selection scheduled for Tuesday, Nikol Pashinian so far is the only candidate formally nominated for the prime minister's post.
While addressing fellow politicians earlier in the day, Mr Pashinian warned that Armenia would be struck by a "political tsunami" if he were not appointed as prime minister.
Armenian opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan was the only candidate, but the parliament did not elect the protest leader to be the country's prime minister.
Mr Pashinyan, who has led weeks of anti-government protests that forced former Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan to resign, is the only candidate.
He is the only candidate for the post, nominated by his Elk coalition, and insists that only he can rid Armenia of corruption and poverty and conduct free and fair elections. However, he needs 53 votes from the 105-seat parliament to rise to premiership.
Mr. Pashinyan was the only nominee, but anyone who garners support from one-third of the members can stand next week.
