I would be glad to serve the parliament…

3000.jpeg"The ward city" put up in the center of Tbilisi by the Georgian opposition two months ago is growing smaller day by day. Today, the territory adjoining Tbilisi Mariott hotel has been cleared of the improvised ward-cages. It is also planned to reorganize the wards near the parliament building. However, the lawmakers are taking their time to return to their building, preparing another visiting session. The Independent Experts Club even called upon them either to resume the work of the country's legislative body, or to withdraw from their mandates.


Tomorrow, on June 9, the Georgian opposition will hold an action against political reprisals in the country. According to the Georgian media, this has been stated by Secretary General of The United Georgia Movement Eka Beselia. Despite the possibility of more protest actions, Tbilisi has got rid of traffic jams and blocks, and the oppositionists are carrying the wards away from Rustaveli Avenue. Is it the opposition's defeat, or just a summer time-out? There is still no answer; the fact is that the parliamentarians are not eager to return back to the building.

The Georgian parliament is not going to resume its normal work this week. The supreme legislative body of the country will continue its activities in the form of visiting sessions owing to the opposition's protests, as Nugzar Tsiklauri, Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Relationship with Nationals Residing Abroad, reported to the journalists. As soon as the supreme legislative body resumes its work, the lawmakers will be too much overwhelmed with the draft laws that were planned to be enacted during the spring session.

There is also the possibility of extraordinary meetings, as well as of a special session, for the spring parliament session was to be officially concluded on the last Friday in June, RIA Novosti explains. "Summer is going to be hot for the Georgian lawmakers, both literally and figuratively", - the parliament office assured.

The deputies were to resume their normal work two weeks ago. However, this week the parliament is still working "in the field". The blocking of supreme legislative body by the parliamentarians themselves caused bewilderment of the Georgian expert community. Today, the Independent Experts Club has sent a special letter to the Georgian parliament. The letter says that the parliamentarians who had been appointed by people ceased their law-making activities since April. The Club members called upon the deputies to resume the work of the country's legislative body, thus encouraging control over the political crisis. Otherwise, the experts recommend the parliamentarians to abandon their posts.
