Bagapsh’s opposition abroad2009-07-20 23:02
There are 5 months before presidential election in Abkhazia scheduled for December 21 2009. As it is established in democratic countries current president Sergey Bagapsh who is to run for the second term has opponents at home. There is also opposition abroad, in Georgia. While the domestic opposition is on a break, the latter is getting more active.
A few days ago Sergey Bagapsh decisively squelched Georgia's dreams of restoration of its territorial integrity live on Ekho Moskvy radio. "Abkhazia will never ever be part of Georgia again, - he stated. Sukhum agrees to build "normal, human, good-neighborly relations with Tbilisi only when Georgia understands "there is no way back to the past".
Earlier there were people in Georgia cherishing hopes that it was possible to come to terms with Bagapsh peacefully, now Sergey Vasilyevich is absolutely unpromising to Georgian politicians. Apparently this is why after the date of presidential election was defined Georgian journalists and politologists started discrimination campaign against the leaders of the republic.
Lnew.az (Azerbaijan) posted an article by a Tbilisian correspondent about Abkhaz Diaspora in Turkey being allegedly discontent with Bagapsh. In particular, they are not happy with Akhazia-Russia bilateral agreement on joint protection of Abkhazia's state border. According to unnamed sources the diaspora submitted a written protest against Bagapsh and Security Council Secretary Stanislav Lakoba. Even the text is presented. "We are concerned that the actions to maintain relations with Russia on a due level throw a shadow on the Abkhaz nation's struggle for independence and sterilize the notion of independence", - the authors of the message, descendants of Abkhaz mokhajirs who fled to Turkey in early 1900s, remark. As commented on lnews.az the opinion of these people in Abkhazia "is often crucial", especially at the time of elections.
Other "incriminating evidence" against Abkhaz authorities was made public by Vice Speaker of Georgian Parliament Paata Davitaya. "Russians are not happy with Bagapsh, - he told Rustavi-2 last week adding that no matter who would be elected president the candidate for Prime Minister was already settled. According to the Georgian parliamentarian it will be State Duma Deputy Vladimir Kolesnikov (ethnic Russian), a twin brother of Viktor Kolesnikov, an advisor to the president of Abkhazia. The brothers were born in Gudauta and occasionally took part in the political life of the republic.
Vladimit Ilych personally denies possibility of a new appointment but the rumor will definitely play into the hands of those who want to arouse discontent of the Abkhazians with the leaders of the republic.
