Georgia: nerves are failing

2009-04-14 09:14

3/6/3/2363.jpegAs Salome Zurabishvili said on April 9 a game of nerves had begun in Georgia. The opposition is trying to replace Mikheil Saakashvili through obstinacy announcing daily acts of rebellion. Everyone is waiting for any side to be the first to make a mistake. The reports on use of force have already appeared.


The opposition warned Tbilisi mayor's office about protest actions that would go on until April 16. Though there is no hope Mikheil Saakashvili will surrender office. That is why oppositionists call the action open-ended. "This is a game of nerves - who blinks first. We are not going to rush into the parliament or Saakashvili's residence. But we'll stay in the avenue till Saakashvili steps down. If he blinks first- i.e. will try to disperse the rally - this will be his last decision as president", - Salome Zurabishvili, Way of Georgia opposition party founder, ex head of Georgia's Foreign Ministry said in her interview with Kommersant newspaper (Russia).

Saakashvili failed to meet the terms of the ultimatum presented to him by Rustaveli Avenue protestors. That is why on April 10 during the next and much thinner protest action the leaders of opposition announced the start of people's rebellion. Kakha Kukava, Conservative Party Secretary General stated that the main streets of the capital would be daily shut off by the protestors. One of United Opposition leaders Levan Gachechiladze added that the people would gather in three places - in front of the parliament, in front of the Public TV building and on the route to the president's residence. "At 21.00 we will all go to the parliament to learn about the plans for the next day", - he remarked. Movement for United Georgia Secretary General Eka Beseila promised to add "as many protest locations as necessary for Saakashvili's resignation". "The main thing is to break Mikheil Saakashvili's daily routine", - joked Gachechiladze quoted by Novosti Georgia.
