The Georgian opposition takes “a business holiday”2009-07-08 13:48
President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili may note with satisfaction both for himself and for the foreign journalists who seem to take much interest in his person that the "spring attack" of the opposition has died out.
Having failed to consolidate their efforts, some of the oppositional leaders decided to take a time-out until autumn. "At this stage, the protest actions against the authorities are obviously bringing no fruit, and there is no sense in deliberately maintaining the protest wave. We should better wait until autumn and start an attack at the authorities afresh", - the former Prime Minister of Georgia and leader of Movement for Fair Georgia Zurab Nogaideli stated.
Nogaideli explained that the recess in the protest actions will be used by the party to work with the public; after that, the party will again strive for the resignation of President Mikhail Saakashvili who "has lost the Georgian territories".
"I am going to destroy and ruin this government. This must be done to save Georgia", - Nogaideli announced in the Position program broadcasted by Rustavi-2. Besides, Mr.Nogaideli denied the accusations on the part of Mikhail Saakashvili who expressed doubts as to the legality of the former prime minister's fortune. According to Nogaideli, he earned his money while he was in business but not when he was at the helm of state.
"I did not make any money while I served in the government; I earned my capital while being in business... If Saakashvili who has lost the war thinks he can intimidate me, well, he is very much mistaken, - Nogaideli stated. - It has been two years since I left office, and these statements are rather suspicious now. Saakashvili can see that we are enforcing our positions and we are getting prepared to take the power". According to him, the authorities are "being hysterical", for they perfectly see that his party "is growing in power and by September, it will be ready to win any election". Moreover, leader of Movement for Fair Georgia Zurab Nogaideli is going to spend all his money on fighting against President Saakashvili so that no one could have any doubts as to his political unselfishness.
Meanwhile, leader of Democratic Movement - United Georgia Nino Burjanadze has got problems of another kind. Ministry of Finance is going to impose a fine upon Nino Anzorovna to the amount of 1500000 laris for late payment of tax. Where does this amount come from?
According to the New Region publication, while being Speaker of Parliament, in May 2008, Mrs. Burjanadze acquired a country house in the resort village of Tskhneti at the price of one lari (which is about 68 cents).
