Mishiko driving a wedge in the opposition

2010-12-24 19:54

11780.jpegThe split between the Georgian oppositional powers is widening. On Tuesday, Nino Burjanadze and Zurab Nogaideli were present at the opening of the memorial "We fought fascism together" in Moscow. Then they in turn met with the head of the Russian government Vladimir Putin. However, an unpleasant surprise was waiting for each of them on their return home. Former PM's party fellows accused him of appropriating the party's treasury and removed him from the post of the fraction leader. Another opponent to the current authorities Irakli Alasania announced that he considered the participation of Nogaideli and the former speaker of parliament in the Moscow


ceremony to be a shame. Such utterances clearly show the way Saakashvili's regime still manages to stay up.

My enemy's enemy is my friend. This must be the saying the leader of party Our Georgia -Free Democrats is guided by to tack between the ruling elite and those who are unsuccessfully trying to set up Mishiko's impeachment. A U-turn must have surprised Burjanadze and Nogaideli who never concealed their ties with Moscow, calling for their supporters in every way to normalize relations with Russia.

It turned out that even such a wonderful, though slightly sad, pretext as the erection of the copy of the Kutaisi memorial to the victims of the Great Patriotic War may become a speculation tool. "The demolition of the Glory Memorial in Kutaisi was an unjustified act of self-will of the Georgian government and an insult to the memory of those hundreds of thousands of fellow countrymen who died fighting fascism but what happened in Moscow was an insult to the Georgian public", - Alasania stated on the air of Kavkasia TV company.

The reasons of his behavior are so far unclear. Perhaps, he is moved by a profound jealousy of his oppositional colleagues who, though with effort, still keep feet in fighting Mikheil Saakashvili. Nevertheless, instead of fighting the fascist regime in Georgia as a single power, some of its morally unstable representatives are torn between two sides.

It all happened against the background of the upcoming parliamentary elections when several oppositional parties came to a conclusion that it is necessary to act unanimously and nominate a single candidate for presidency. It becomes obvious that the weakness of Mikheil Saakashvili's opponents, of which he readily takes advantage, comes from their inability to define the boundaries within their own relationship.

I wonder whether Mr. Alasani remembers the shame of being removed from the position of Georgia's permanent representative to UN after the notorious events in August 2008. Does he hope to regain the current president's favour by his "anti-Russian statements"?

Besides, Zurab Nogaideli's former party fellows suddenly held grudge against their leader. They suspect Sakartvelo's former PM of a decision to abnegate the powers of a fighter with injustice and take the side of the "dark powers", though representatives of regional organizations acting under the aegis of Movement for Fair Georgia suppose that Nogaideli is doing it secretly, being the agent of the Interior Ministry. That's why the held a local revolution at the Chess Palace, having removed Nogaideli from the post of the fraction leader.

Eka Kapanadze from Chitaurskaya regional organization said that the party representatives allegedly offered her half a million laris for disrupting the extraordinary meeting, her words being confirmed by Zurab Jabidze from Terdzholskaya regional organization.
