Saakashvili is driving the country to revolt?2013-03-01 17:05
Georgia faces a coup? Experts and politicians are reflecting on this. The occasion was the announcement of a large-scale campaign that "United National Movement" is going to hold on April 19, in the former parliament building at Rustaveli Avenue - a place that has a bad reputation of revolutions and coups. Prime Minister Ivanishvili calls on the population to treat the announced actions with humor, and Georgian experts say that a lot will depend on the outcome of the discussion of constitutional amendments to reduce the powers of the president of Georgia, to be completed in March.
"Nationals" have announced the holding of the action in the former parliament building in Tbilisi 2 months before the rally. The first who had declared this was the former Interior Minister, now the secretary general of the party Vano Merabishvili, for which he held a press conference. "Georgia has often faced a serious choice throughout the history", said Merabishvili. "Unfortunately, foggy position of the country's leadership over its foreign policy gives us a reason to get together and tell the government that our future is Europe. We will hold a meeting in Tbilisi at Rustaveli Avenue and welcome everyone", said Merabishvili.
General Secretary of Mikheil Saakashvili's party has announced rally at the very time when, according to the Constitution, the President is entitled to dissolve the parliament. But this requires a reason: for example, the introduction of a state of emergency. They only need to stage a provocation ...
The venue of the rally has notorious reputation. A rally on April 9, 1989, was dispersed here; the civil war, which led to the overthrow of the then President Zviad Gamsakhurdia, began here in December 1991; "Rose Revolution" started here; the rallies of the 7th of November, 2007 and 26th of May 2011, were also dispersed here. Last crackdown has also led to victims.
As soon as Merabishvili has announced the rally, representative of the "Georgian Dream" Koba Davitashvili "saw through" the plans of "Nationals". According to him, "United National Movement" is going to organize a coup on April 19. "Saakashvili and his team saw that we have started to carry out campaign promises. They, like a drowning man, are clutching at a straw, a revolution - this is their last chance", Davitashvili said in an interview with reporters. "But I'd like to tell Merabishvili and "National Movement" - come on, gentlemen, try and you will receive an adequate response from the people of Georgia", said Davitashvili.
Prime Minister Ivanishvili treated the "announced coup" with humor and called on the population of Georgia to follow his example. "I think that the "National Movement" is trying to cheer up the audience", said Ivanishvili. "I can do no serious analysis about this action. Population of Georgia has a good sense of humor, and I think they will perceive such statements with a smile".
