President Sarkissian congratulated Mr. Pashinyan on becoming the country's new prime minister.
"What is this? Initial naivete, ignorance of the subject, the bravado of the victor or maybe all of these together?" he later said of Pashinian's announcement. Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry spokesman Hikmet Hajiyev said.
The unresolved status of Nagorno-Karabakh contributes to the economic problems that are a key issue for Pashinian's supporters.
"Representatives of the party will not be members of the government".
Pashinyan needed at least 53 votes in the 105-seat unicameral parliament to be named Prime Minister. Forty-two other HHK deputies voted against him. "And this place is not in power, but in the opposition".
After a referendum approved the constitutional reform in 2015, the country is to switch from the presidential to the parliamentary rule.
Opponents from the ruling Republican Party have accused Pashinyan - who says he wants good relations with both Russian Federation and the West - of being unpredictable and lacking a clear programme and ideology.
Armenia's new prime minister has suggested that he will push for recognition of the sovereignty of the Nagorno-Karabakh region - one of Armenia's most hard and volatile problems.
"The ruling Republican Party still has the majority in the parliament but this was a great victory", said Mike Minasyants, another Pashinyan supporter. It has direct land access only to a narrow border with Iran and to Georgia.
Reports say the new PM experienced a meteoric rise in popularity in recent weeks by appealing to Armenians of all ages with his so-called Velvet Revolution exercising true people power - the ability to conjure up a storm of support on request.
She said she hopes Pashinyan will "clean the system" and "protect the people's interests", adding: "There is no need to keep protesting; now we're just going to celebrate". The Armenian opposition who is almost certain to become the country's prime minister says he will not seek political revenge in the wake of the past month of tensions. Later, he joined the protest movement lead by the First President of Armenia, Levon Ter-Petrosyan (1991-1998), who was again nominated as presidential candidate in 2007, so challenging Serzh Sargsyan during the presidential elections.
