President-elect Armen Sarkissian on Friday thanked all the members of the National Assembly for taking part in the voting. In a ceremony held on October 10, 2009, the foreign ministers signed the two protocols, supported by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, which required ratification from parliaments of both countries. "Work which is in fact the continuation of the years of the first, second and your presidency of the Republic", Dr. Sarkissian told the president. "I will invest my long experience and knowledge and my entire energy in properly performing the duties of Armenia's president and properly serving the Republic of Armenia, its citizens and our people".

Sarkissian succeeds Serzh Sarksyan, who opposition leaders say could now become prime minister. Under the terms of a constitution approved in 2015 in a referendum that effectively abolished direct presidential elections, parliament can elect a president with a three-quarters majority. With Armenia switching to a parliamentary system of government, he would remain the country's most powerful man in that case. In particular, he will appoint members of the government, Armenian ambassadors overseas and the Armenian army's top brass.

According to Interfax, for the position was chosen by the former Prime Minister, Ambassador to great Britain Armen Sargsyan.

Serzh Sargsyan is a former military officer who fought in the 1988-94 Nagorny-Karabakh War against fellow former Soviet republic-turned-arch-enemy Azerbaijan and previously served as prime minister from 2007-2008.

He also visited the Diaspora communities in Vienna and Beirut, but interestingly not the United States, specifically Los Angeles, which houses the largest concentration of Armenians outside Armenia.
