Armenian President Armen Sarkissian has resigned. He showed the lack of constitutional powers while making important decisions in moments of national emergence.

He told the reporters that he had not made the decision out of emotion but had resigned for some specific reasons. The Armenian president said he had decided to resign after nearly four years of deliberations over obstacles to doing so. He said the Armenian constitution did not give the country's president enough power and freedom to act.

He hoped that the constitution would be amended to enact laws for the country so that the next president and his administration could work in a more balanced environment.

In 2018,  president of Armenia was elected by voting in the parliament, and according to the constitution, he was to remain in power until 2025. But before he could do so, he stepped aside.

Almost all of Armenia's most important institutions are under the control of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, and the presidency is very rhetorical.
