Assembly of Trust saying hello to Georgia’s special services
No matter what IRI opinion polls might claim, Georgian people have no trust in their authorities. Otherwise they would not invent a new non-governmental structure called “The Assembly of Trust”. According to the initiators from Save Life movement, the assembly will consist of people trusted by practically all political and public organizations of the country. The only embarrassing thing is that the Assembly of Trust partially replicates All-People’s Representative Assembly thus decreasing the latter’s striking force in run-up to the big congress. Presumably, split in society plays in the hands of Georgian special services, now particularly active.

On the other hand, the opposition suspects some catch in Minister Dmitry Shashkin’s proposal: his initiatives often have side effects. This time, one should again beware of censure and monopolization of the schoolbooks market.

Not long ago it turned out that support of industry, agricultural development or challenging economic reforms won’t take the country out of the debt hole. Like the chipmunks from a famous cartoon Hindu movie makers and US musicians are racing to rescue.
